COVID-19 Vaccine

Indiana residents age 16 and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Remember, you can get vaccinated at any site in Indiana. You can register HERE

On-campus Vaccination Update
  • To help the University focus on vaccine administration to students before the semester ends, faculty and staff are encouraged to continue to utilize the vaccination sites in the local community for appointments rather than scheduling an appointment on-campus. It is important to note that if you receive your first dose at a local vaccination site, the University will not be able to administer your second dose at the on-campus center.
  • If accessing a vaccination site or appointment in the local community is a challenge, the University can accommodate you at our on-campus center. Appointments for the first dose of the vaccine at the on-campus vaccination center will be from Thursday, April 8 through Thursday, April 15. The center will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. At your first appointment, you will make arrangements to receive your second dose at the vaccination center exactly three weeks from when you received your first dose, between Thursday, April 29 and Thursday, May 6.  
  • In the coming days you will receive an email from Zotec Partners, the company that the Indiana Department of Health utilizes to provide technical support through the vaccination process, to schedule your on-campus vaccine. You should only use this link if you need to schedule your first dose at the on-campus center. Within the email, you will receive a unique link to schedule your first dose of the vaccine. Please note that the link provided will only allow for you to schedule your first dose and should not be forwarded. 
Documenting your COVID-19 Vaccine

After you have received either the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, the University is asking that you upload your vaccination documentation into PyraMed.

1.    Scan or take a picture of your vaccination card.
2.    Access the portal at
3.    Click on the red text link on the landing page directing you to fill out your pending forms.
4.    Open the form for COVID Vaccination – Faculty or Staff.
5.    Choose the option to share your one or two-dose vaccine information. 

NOTE: If you received the two-dose series, make sure that you have completed both doses before uploading any information.
