Student Vaccine Clinics
The Yale COVID-19 Vaccination Program will be receiving an ample supply of the Pfizer vaccine to operate vaccination clinics at the Lanman Center for all students. The Pfizer vaccine is a two-dose series, with the second dose provided 21 days later. Check your email for an update from Dr. Christine Chen regarding this matter.

You can schedule an appointment by following these steps:
- Sign into MyChart and go to “Appointments” if you are using the MyChart app, or “Visits” if you are using the MyChart website, and click “Schedule an Appointment.”
- You will see an order for “COVID19 Vaccine Dose 1.” Click on “SCHEDULE NOW.”
- You will be asked a series of questions. When answering the question “Please select your relationship to Yale University,” make sure to select “Student (Undergraduate or Graduate/Professional).”
- Once you have answered all of the questions, you will be able to select a date and time for your vaccination at the "YHC Vaccination Clinic".
- If needed, you can return to the “Visits” or “Appointments” section to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
Detailed Instructions to register can be found here.
The entrance to the Lanman Center vaccination clinic is located at 72 Lake Place. Please remember to bring your Yale ID and be prepared to stay for at least 15 minutes of observation after receiving the vaccine. You will schedule your second dose of vaccine at the Lanman Center after receiving your first one.
If you’ve scheduled an appointment at a location that requires significant travel, consider cancelling that appointment and scheduling at Lanman. If you’ve already received the first of two doses elsewhere, please plan to complete the series at the same location.

J&J Vaccine Pause
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have paused the administration of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine as they investigate six reported cases of an uncommon and severe type of blood clot. The CDC and FDA took this action out of an abundance of caution because of the possible association of J&J vaccination with a rare blood clotting disorder.
