Vaccination at Cornell

Cornell will require vaccination for students returning to Ithaca, Geneva and Cornell Tech campuses for the Fall 2021 semester. At this time, Cornell is not requiring our employees to be vaccinated; however, we strongly encourage all members of our community to be vaccinated when eligible. Vaccination is key to the resolution of this global pandemic, and we hope that all take this opportunity to protect yourselves, as well as our community.

Getting Vaccinated

The CDC offers a tool to search for vaccination sites near you, and the Tompkins County Health Department has several local vaccination sites and frequently offers pop-up clinics. Be sure to schedule your first dose with the second appointment in mind; there are 21 days between doses of the Pfizer vaccine, 28 days between doses of the Moderna vaccine, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is one dose. Bring your photo identification and insurance card, if you have one, to your scheduled appointment.
