Covid-19 Vaccine Resources
How do I receive a COVID-19 vaccine or booster in the Dartmouth area?
COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are available in multiple locations. For current information about locally available vaccines, visit https://www.vaccines.gov/ and enter your zip code. You may select for your preferred vaccine type and indicate whether you are seeking a primary series dose or booster shot. COVID-19 vaccination is provided at these sites at no charge.
Dartmouth typically hosts COVID-19 vaccine clinics on campus at the start of each term. For Winter term, Dartmouth is hosting on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinics on Jan. 4 and 9. at which students, faculty, and staff can get a bivalent booster vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna). Primary series vaccines will not be available at these clinics. Clinics will be held from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. (with breaks from 12 to 1 p.m. and from 5 to 6 p.m.) in the Paganucci Lounge at Class of 1953 Commons. Please schedule an appointment as walk-in appointments are limited.
In addition to local pharmacies, the State of Vermont is offering clinics for vaccinations and booster doses. For more information, visit https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19. You can find more information about local clinics in New Hampshire at https://www.vaccines.nh.gov/.
At this time, Dartmouth requires students, faculty and staff to receive all recommended doses in their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine and one booster dose when eligible. If you receive a second booster, you may choose to submit your vaccination record to Dartmouth. Students can submit their record to the Health Service web portal, and employees can submit their record using the vaccine tracker form.
Eligibility and Choosing your Vaccine
Please consult the CDC's guidance on staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines for the most updated information on primary series and booster vaccine eligibility. Students can also contact the Dartmouth College Health Service and faculty and staff can contact their primary care provider.
Exemptions from the Vaccine Requirement
For individuals seeking an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement, medical exemptions require a letter from the individual's primary care physician and religious exemptions require a letter written by the individual. Employees seeking exemptions from the booster requirement should follow the instructions on the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity's website, and students should send letters to email@example.com.
Remember to sign your Student Vaccination Consent/Release form on your health portal so that your vaccination status may be shared with the College.
