The State of New York has authorized Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a Point of Distribution (POD) for the COVID-19 vaccine. The Institute has received an initial supply of the Johnson & Johnson, one-dose vaccine and will administer it to eligible Rensselaer students, aged 18 and older. We strongly encourage all eligible students to receive the vaccination to protect themselves and those around them. Please watch Dr. Lawrence's video to learn more about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Your On-Campus Vaccination Appointment
Please be on time for your scheduled appointment. Bring your Rensselaer identification card to your on-site vaccination appointment to check in. The overall process will take approximately 45 minutes, which will include the time necessary to fill out your pre-vaccination application form, administration of the vaccine, and a 15-minute observation period at the end to monitor your health, depending on your medical history. During your appointment, you will receive a record of your vaccination.
After Your On-Campus Vaccination Appointment
After you have been vaccinated, you must continue to follow all of Rensselaer’s community health and safety policies and protocols. As a community, we must continue to protect ourselves and the health, safety, and well-being of others in order to finish the semester strong.
