Vaccine

 

Currently, the Health Center offers the following COVID-19 vaccines for current students, as well as employees and their spouses/dependents:

  • First and second doses for Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson
  • Additional doses for individuals who are immunocompromised
  • Booster doses for Pfizer, Moderna and J&J (for those who are eligible based on the above mentioned criteria)

Boosters are now available at the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center for all three U.S. COVID-19 vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.

In addition, the CDC approved “mixing and matching” shots, which allows eligible individuals to choose which vaccine they receive for their booster even if it is different from their original vaccine.

  • For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at 6 months or more after their primary series:
    • 65 years and older
    • Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
    • Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
    • Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
  • For individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are:
    • Age 18+
    • who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

We highly recommend consulting with a healthcare provider if you have questions about your risks from COVID-19 and whether a booster dose would be beneficial.

All current students, SMU employees and their eligible spouse/dependents can book a vaccination appointment through our health portal (button below) or by calling the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center at 214-768-2141 (option 1).  
 

For those of you who received their first dose of Pfizer at SMU’s vaccination site you will receive an email or text notification when it’s time to schedule your second dose appointment.

Voluntarily Report Your Vaccine to SMU

Reporting your vaccine status through the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center helps the contact tracing team in the event you are identified as a close contact. Remember, you are not considered a close contact and will not have to undergo mandatory quarantine if you are fully vaccinated. 

Steps:

1. Login to the health center portal using your SMU credentials.

2. Click "Enter my COVID-19 vaccine information" on the portal's main home screen.

3. In the appropriate fields, enter the vaccine which was administered to you as well as the dates you received them.

4. Upload a photo of your COVID-19 vaccine card. 

5. Click "Done."
