Vaccination is the best protection against the spread of COVID-19. A widely vaccinated community safeguards the health, wellness and safety of our students, faculty and staff, and helps our University return to more normal operations.
At this time, the Barnes Center at The Arch does not have a vaccine supply. A limited supply of the vaccine will be available in August and we will notify the campus community.
How to Get a Vaccine Off Campus
- Schedule an appointment: You can make an appointment by visiting Vaccines.gov. Once there, you will be prompted to identify an available time that works for you.
- Complete the two forms provided in your confirmation email: After you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email. This email will contain links to two forms: 1) a screening and consent form that will need to be printed and completed and 2) a form attesting to your eligibility status. The attestation form will provide a “Submission ID,” which you can show on your phone when you arrive at the vaccine clinic.
- Provide proof of eligibility to your appointment: Individuals must bring proof of age. For individuals younger than the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must provide consent for vaccination. A parent or legal guardian must provide verbal consent either while accompanying the minor to the vaccination appointment, or by phone at the time of the vaccination appointment.
- Bring your insurance card: You will be asked for insurance information, but the vaccine is free and there will never be a charge to you. This information is for administrative use only. You do not need to have insurance to get the vaccine.
Please note: The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines both require a second dose, which will be scheduled during your appointment for the first dose. The Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one dose. For vaccines that require two doses, make sure to plan to attend your second appointment in the same location as your first appointment. For Moderna, the second dose is given 28 days after the first and for Pfizer, the second dose is given 21 days after the first.
Submitting Proof of Your Vaccination for Students
For those students who have already received the COVID vaccine, we ask that you please submit your documentation through the Student Patient Portal.
Faculty and Staff COVID-19 Vaccine Status Attestation Questionnaire
The Office of Human Resources is asking faculty and staff to complete a brief COVID-19 Vaccine Status Attestation Questionnaire to confirm their vaccination status. Faculty and staff can also use the form to claim exemption from this requirement for medical or sincerely held religious reasons. Completion of this form is not necessary for those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine on campus.
