About COVID-19 Vaccines

Public health officials recommend vaccination as the first and best way to ultimately protect our community against COVID-19. However, stopping this pandemic requires us to continue to deploy all public health strategies, including those well-known to us (e.g., mask wearing, physical distancing, frequent hand washing, avoiding large groups, limiting travel).

As of April 6, all New York state residents ages 16 and over are eligible to receive the vaccine. Participation in the community-wide vaccination effort is strongly encouraged in order to protect and safeguard the health of our campus and greater Ithaca community. Three COVID-19 vaccines – Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) – are currently being distributed in the U.S.
