COVID-19 Vaccination Information
COVID vaccines are available from the Baylor Health Center now and throughout the summer. Click HERE or call 254-710-1010 for appointments.
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 over the next few months.
Vaccination Reporting Form:
- Students, faculty and staff who have been fully vaccinated with an FDA EUA COVID-19 vaccine should fill out the simple Vaccination Reporting form, which includes uploading a photo of your completed vaccination card. This HIPAA-protected 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 the fall.
Vaccinations on Campus:
- Baylor Health Services is an authorized vaccine provider and has COVID-19 vaccination appointments available for students and employees now and throughout the summer. Click HERE or call the Health Center at 254-710-1010 to make your appointment.
