Open NOW For All: Vaccine Appointments in Passport Portal

April 29, 2021

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students:

We are delighted to invite you to sign up for our next COVID-19 Vaccination clinics at Brandeis. Signups are now open in the Brandeis Campus Passport — you’ll notice the new green button “Schedule COVID Vaccine” to schedule your appointment. Faculty, staff and students are all encouraged to sign up for appointments.

We will be hosting two clinics prior to the end of term:

Wednesday May 5, 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. Johnson & Johnson/Janssen Clinic
We will be offering a one day Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine clinic. This vaccine requires one dose. Sign up for this clinic if you have not previously received a vaccine.

Thursday & Friday, May 13-14, 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.  Pfizer Clinic

We will be offering a two-day Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine clinic. This vaccine requires two doses. Sign up for this clinic if you received a vaccination at our April clinic or if you received a vaccine elsewhere at least 17 days prior to the date of your appointment. You may also sign up for your first dose of the Pfizer vaccine if you prefer this vaccine.

Given our new mandatory requirement for students, we encourage all students to receive an FDA-authorized vaccine prior to departure from campus this spring. International students should be assured that we will ensure they receive the documentation their government requires for re-entry to their home country.

Faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to receive a vaccination as soon as possible.

Members of the community who receive both Pfizer doses or their single Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccines through our clinics will automatically receive the COVID-19 vaccination sticker in the Passport by the end of May. If you received one dose of Pfizer at Brandeis or have been vaccinated elsewhere, please upload a photo of your vaccination card to the Preferences page of the Passport as soon as your vaccinations are complete.

We are planning to host weekly clinics at Brandeis throughout the summer, so second Pfizer doses will be available through Brandeis as well if you receive your first Pfizer dose in May.

We are incredibly excited to host these clinics to make vaccines accessible to our students, faculty and staff and to keep our campus community safe and healthy!

See you at a clinic,
Morgen Bergman, Assistant Provost for Strategic Initiatives
Director, COVID-19 Vaccination Program
