VCU Together Update for students - April 16

Students can now sign up for COVID-19 vaccine clinic through VCU

Our priorities are the health, safety and wellness — both physical and emotional — of every member of the VCU community. VCU continues to monitor, assess and address situations as they arise. This weekly update will be a resource to help keep you informed as details become available. All updates are available at Receive notifications by downloading VCU Mobile from your iOS or Android app store.

Need a vaccine?

The Virginia Department of Health opened eligibility for vaccines to phase 2, which means students are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. To attend an on-campus clinic the week of April 19, sign up here.

You will receive an email from “Vaccination Clinics” ( with a subject line “COVID-19 Registration Invitation” when it is time to schedule your appointment.

It is important that you check your email regularly to look for opportunities to schedule an appointment. Again, you will only be sent an appointment email if you sign up using the link above. Note, VCU paused the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine based on guidance from health agencies. Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require a second dose. You will receive information about making your second appointment after you receive your first dose.

If you require accommodations or have questions, please do not reply to the “Vaccination Clinics” email; instead, contact after you confirm your appointment.

VCU continues to recommend you receive the vaccine wherever you can, whether that be VCU or your state or local health district. For more information, visit

Have you already received your vaccination?

If you received your COVID-19 vaccination and would like to report it to VCU, you can do so through VCU Student Health Services. In addition to guidance from public health experts, VCU relies on this timely information to make decisions that impact university operations and plan future vaccination events. Vaccinated VCU community members may also be exempt from surveillance testing and extended quarantine. Vaccination and reporting your vaccination to VCU are voluntary and not a condition of enrollment or employment. For information about how to submit immunization records to VCU Student Health Services, visit

If you are in the process of being vaccinated (if you have an appointment or are awaiting a second dose) and wish to report your vaccination at a later date, a link to this reporting form is available through your daily health check or myVCU portal.
