At this time, the University is administering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine which is approved for use in individuals 16 years of age and older. Please note, minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in order to receive the vaccine.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS – we kindly ask that you please wait to schedule your vaccination appointments until the last week of April so our college students are able to be vaccinated before the end of their current term. Thank you for your cooperation.
As we continue to improve the vaccination registration process, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with a trusted vaccination management provider. Our new partner has processed over one million vaccinations through their state of the art vaccine management solution. There are over 90 sites in the state of Florida currently using this solution. We are enthusiastic about working with them in our site.
You will find more information on how to create an account and register for your vaccines on our website: https://vaccine.fsu.edu. The entry code for our site is FSU2021.
The next vaccine clinic will be held on Monday, April 5th. Individuals who meet the criteria are encouraged to visit https://vaccine.fsu.edu to create an account and begin the registration process. A second dose clinic will be held on Monday, April 26th. You will have the ability to register for both first and second dose appointments at this time. Please complete the registration process immediately to secure your vaccine appointments. If you secure appointments for vaccinations, please mark your calendar for these important dates.
The vaccine will be distributed within Florida Department of Health guidelines. Individuals are encouraged to speak with their primary care provider to discuss any questions before electing to be vaccinated. If you have any of the following conditions, please consider consulting with your current medical provider if you need guidance on COVID-19 vaccination for your specific situation:
- Compromised immune system (such as cancer or if you take certain immunosuppressive medications)
- If you have been given any other vaccine two weeks before getting the COVID-19 vaccine. You should also not have any other vaccine until more than two weeks after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
- History of severe COVID-19 illness and you were treated with COVID-19 antibodies within the past three months.
- Currently, have a moderate or severe illness.
- Recently been diagnosed with COVID-19 and have not yet recovered and been cleared from isolation.
- Under quarantine as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
- If you have a history of allergic reactions, you may still receive the COVID-19 vaccine as long as the allergy was not to a vaccine component. Clinical staff will monitor you after the vaccination for your safety.
