Frequently Asked Questions
How do I obtain a vaccine in NYC?
Vaccine eligibility is determined by New York State. To check if you are eligible and to schedule a vaccine appointment please visit:
I am not a New York resident, but I currently live here. How do I prove eligibility?
Two forms of documentation are required along with your university ID.
Documentation must include:
- proof of age (e.g., driver’s license; copy or photo of birth certificate; document from Cornell with name and date of birth)
- proof of local residence (e.g., lease; utility bill; residence hall housing contract; Cornell document with local address)
I live in The House. How do I access my license agreement?
If you require proof of residency in The House, please log in to the housing application portal on the Apply for Housing page to print your current Housing License Agreement. Hard copy printing is available with the printing service in the lobby of The House.
What information will the university collect?
The system will allow community members to provide proof of vaccination, including the manufacturer of the vaccine (e.g., Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson/Janssen), the number of doses received, the dates, the location of vaccination and an image of your vaccination card.
Is it mandatory to upload my vaccination information?
Yes, the university requires all faculty, staff, and students to upload their COVID-19 vaccination information.
What is ‘primary’ vaccination?
Individuals are considered to have received their primary vaccination after they have received the second dose of a two-dose MRNA series (Pfizer or Moderna), or after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen). Currently,
I have obtained a vaccine outside of the United States that is not currently approved by the U.S. FDA. Should I report this and what can I expect?
Please fill out the vaccination form if you have received a vaccine, even if it is not approved at this point by the U.S. FDA. We expect that guidelines for those receiving these vaccines will continue to evolve and encourage those affected to be on the lookout for new advice from the CDC and NYS Department of Health. Having your vaccination information on file will make it easier for Cornell to communicate with you if we learn of new guidance.
I don’t have an electronic copy of my proof of vaccination. Can I scan it to my computer or take a picture on my phone? Can I upload multiple images?
Yes, you may scan or take a picture of your proof of vaccination and upload it directly into the form using your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. If the necessary information requires uploading multiple images (e.g., front and back of your CDC vaccination card), the form has this capability. Once you’ve uploaded the first image, click on “add another file” to upload additional documentation.
What if I lose my vaccine documentation?
The CDC vaccination card you received is the best means to show you have been vaccinated. Keep it in a safe place. For any additional documentation, contact the healthcare provider who administered the vaccine. Most states require that vaccine providers keep records on paper or in a database. If you’re unable to get documentation from the provider, contact your state board of health for assistance.
