Dear Barnard Community,

We are pleased to inform you that beginning later this month, we expect members of the Barnard Community who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine based on New York State criteria to be eligible to schedule appointments at a Columbia-operated vaccination site. More information regarding the location(s) and how to schedule appointments will be announced soon.

In the meantime, and in order to facilitate the process, we want to give all Barnard community members the opportunity to voluntarily share their vaccination status and/or interest in this survey.

Members of our community who are already vaccinated can use the survey to voluntarily share their vaccination status and information. This information may be helpful as guidance continues to develop about protocols for vaccinated individuals, and as boosters become recommended and available.

If you are not vaccinated, and you are eligible for vaccination in New York, please use the survey to opt in to receiving information from Columbia or another partner vaccination provider about opportunities to get the vaccine near campus.

You can check your eligibility and review the eligibility requirements on the NYS website.

  • If you live in New York, including in campus housing, and are eligible based on age or underlying condition, you can receive the vaccine in New York.
  • If you live outside New York and are eligible based on in-person employment at Barnard, you can receive the vaccine in New York.

More information regarding vaccine locations and additional resources for scheduling appointments can be found on our COVID-19 Vaccine website. We will continue to make updates to that website, including information about the new vaccination sites.
