COVID-19 Vaccination Information
COVID vaccines are available now at the Baylor Health Center for students and employees. Make an appointment online or call 254-710-1010.
Although Baylor University will not require a COVID-19 vaccination for students, faculty and staff for the fall semester, Baylor's medical team strongly encourages everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible. We all want a full, normal fall experience, and the extent to which Baylor can provide this is directly dependent on the information we have regarding vaccination of the campus community.
Form for Confirming Your Vaccination
If you are a fully vaccinated student, faculty and staff member, please fill out the brief HIPAA-protected form and upload a photo of your completed vaccination card. PLEASE NOTE: To successfully access the form, you must be logged in to your Baylor-provided email account. If you have previously submitted this information, you do not need to resubmit the form.
This information will be submitted to Health Services for exemption from weekly testing and quarantine and helps us know how well protected Baylor is as a community while we continue planning for a normal fall.
Why should I get vaccinated?
We all yearn for a return to normal. Our campus community can accelerate our path to normal by getting vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible. There are many compelling reasons to go ahead and get vaccinated now:
- The American College Health Association urges college students to schedule their COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible and not to delay.
- Protection from COVID for you, your family and friends.
- No more weekly testing.
- No quarantine if exposed.
- Optional masks.
- Help allow a normal fall with more in-person events and traditions.
- Travel without the need to self-quarantine (in the United States).
- Protection from severe illness and hospitalization.
