Students, have you been vaccinated against COVID-19?

Please report it to the university with this form. Questions about reporting your vaccination? See our reporting FAQs and vaccination record FAQs.


Staying up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccination

As with vaccines for other diseases, people are best protected against infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 when they stay up-to-date with vaccinations.

  • The CDC recommends everyone ages 12 years and older receive a booster after completing their primary COVID-19 vaccination series. Some people can receive two boosters.
  • COVID-19 vaccine booster information from the CDC outlines the following:
    • Who should get one booster
    • Who can get a second booster
    • When to get your booster
    • Which booster you can get

If you are eligible for a booster, U-M students and patients/employees who have an active patient portal can self-schedule through their patient portal to receive the Moderna vaccine at UHS. Or call 734-764-8320 and press option 2 to schedule an appointment over the phone. 


Getting the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at UHS

  • UHS offers the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for the primary series.
  • UHS will offer the new bivalent Moderna COVID-19 booster vaccine beginning September 26, 2022. 
  • All U-M students and patients/employees who have an active patient portal can self-schedule through their patient portal to receive the Moderna vaccine at UHS. Or call 734-764-8320 and press option 2 to schedule an appointment over the phone.

Getting the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine locally

  • UHS patients can receive the Pfizer vaccine primary series and boosters, through Michigan Medicine. 
  • All U-M students and patients/employees who have an active patient portal can self-schedule through their patient portal to receive the Pfizer vaccine at Michigan Medicine.
  • To find a Pfizer appointment at a retail pharmacy within 10 miles of campus, go to the Pfizer retail pharmacy vaccine finder.

What's the difference between a 3rd dose and a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?

  • For healthy individuals, a primary series consists of 2 doses of an mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer), or one dose of the J&J vaccine. 
  • For moderately to severely immunocompromised individuals, a primary COVID-19 vaccine series consists of 3 doses of the Moderna vaccine, 3 doses of the Pfizer vaccine, or 1 dose of the J&J vaccine plus an mRNA dose (Moderna or Pfizer).
  • A booster dose is an additional vaccine that is received after the primary series

COVID-19 third dose vaccines for moderately to severely immunocompromised people

  • People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable to COVID-19, and may not build the same level of immunity to the 2-dose vaccine series compared to people who are not immunocompromised. This additional dose is intended to improve immunocompromised people’s response to their initial vaccine series
  • The CDC recommends that people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

Let us know if you have been vaccinated elsewhere

For U-M students or employees: Visit the U-M Vaccine page on the Campus Blueprint website to get more vaccine information for the U-M campus community, including information about how to report your vaccination status.

For Michigan Medicine patients: If you are a Michigan Medicine patient who has been vaccinated by a non-Michigan Medicine provider, we ask that you update your patient record with your vaccination information. This is especially important for patients who were vaccinated through the VA or by out-of-state providers and helps ensure your vaccination records are up-to-date. Here are detailed instructions on how to update your patient record.

If you are not a MyUofMHealth patient portal user, please bring your vaccine documentation to your next appointment so we can update your medical records to reflect your vaccination.


    For U-M international students, scholars, and employees

    The U-M International Center offers this guidance about getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
