The University of Toledo has expanded its vaccine registry, enabling members of the campus community to share documentation of COVID-19 booster shots.

While booster doses are strongly encouraged for all eligible faculty, staff and students, they are not currently included as part of the University’s vaccine requirement.

However, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services does require healthcare facilities receiving CMS funding to have a process for tracking booster shots among their employees, students and trainees.

Employees and clinical learners at The University of Toledo Medical Center and other University-affiliated clinical sites who have received a booster shot should upload documentation through the University’s vaccine registry portal by Monday, Feb. 14.

All other faculty, staff and students who have received a booster dose are encouraged to upload proof through the secure registry.

To submit documentation, individuals need to have a photo of their vaccine card showing the date and vaccine type and must have already submitted proof of their initial vaccine course.

COVID-19 booster doses are available on campus Monday through Friday at the Main Campus Pharmacy or the Outpatient Pharmacy in the UTMC Medical Pavilion on Health Science Campus.

Currently, individuals are eligible to receive a booster five months after receiving a second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or two months after receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

Appointments are available through the Ohio Department of Health’s scheduling portal.
