COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

Tulane students, faculty and staff are required to submit a record of having received the COVID-19 vaccine plus recommended boosters per CDC guidance. Students are asked to follow the latest recommendations and receive their booster shots in a timely manner as they become eligible.

For all COVID-19 vaccine questions, please email covidvaccine@tulane.edu.

See Tulane specific-FAQs about the COVID-19 vaccine.

How to achieve compliance

If you received your vaccine and/or booster(s) through an entity outside of Tulane, you must submit documentation through the Campus Health Patient Portal to update your vaccination records. 

If you received your vaccine and/or booster(s) through Tulane, we will upload those records automatically; you do not need to take action.

How to submit your COVID-19 vaccine record

  1. Log into the Patient Portal using your Tulane email address (without the @tulane.edu) and your email password.
  2. Click the Immunization link in the top menu. It may take a moment for your immunization history to load.
  3. Find the blue drop down menu labeled COVID-19 U.S. Approved Vaccines or COVID-19 International Approved Vaccines, depending on which is applicable to you, and expand the drop down.
  4. For new students, enter the dates of all your COVID-19 vaccine doses and then click Submit. For returning students, enter the date of your latest booster dose and then click Submit.
  5. Go back to the top of the page and click the Upload link in the top menu.
  6. You will see a drop down menu labeled Choose document you are uploading. Select Proof of COVID-19 Vaccine in the dropdown.
  7. Use the Select File button to locate the appropriate file on your computer and then upload it.
  8. For questions about uploading documentation, please email chtestresults@tulane.edu. For all COVID-19 vaccine questions, please email covidvaccine@tulane.edu.
