Schedule a Vaccine or Booster Appointment

About COVID-19 Vaccinations and Boosters Available on Campus

BW offers the Moderna vaccine and booster and the J&J Janssen vaccine. View information about the Moderna vaccine (2 shots, 1 month apart) and the J&J vaccine (1 shot). Individuals who want to receive the Pfizer vaccine or booster should contact other vaccine providers. Current CDC guidelines consider a person fully vaccinated two weeks after completing the vaccine.

Providing Record of COVID-19 Vaccination

Based on guidance from the CDC and the Ohio Department of Health, non-symptomatic students, faculty or staff who have received a complete COVID-19 vaccine will not be required to quarantine if they are an identified close contact of a positive individual and provide documentation to support this. Vaccinated students, faculty and staff can submit proof of COVID-19 immunization(s), including booster information, through the Med+Proctor system which BW uses to track and provide compliance, using their BW email address.

Note: If you submitted your vaccination information to BW Health Services during the spring 2021 semester or are a new student who submitted vaccine information via onboarding forms through BW's Admissions portal, you MUST also upload your information to Med+Proctor. This is the system the University will use going forward to track vaccinations and waive quarantine and surveillance testing protocols.

All BW students, faculty and staff can provide evidence of vaccinations by uploading a photo of their vaccination card through the secure platform at Med+Proctor.

(Please note: You do NOT need to purchase the membership or submit a doctor-signed immunization certificate.)
