Dear Members of the TC Community,

The COVID-19 booster shot documentation form is now available. Please upload your documentation by February 28. If you have not yet received a booster shot, or if you would like to request an exemption, read this email for more information.

Upload Your Booster Shot Documentation

Haven't Received A Booster Yet?

If you are eligible to receive a booster shot but have not yet done so, please schedule an appointment for one as soon as possible.

  • Log in to the CU Health Portal to make a booster shot appointment at CU.
  • Visit to find a booster shot appointment in New York City.
  • Visit to find a booster shot appointment elsewhere in the U.S.
    See an explanation of eligibility below.

If you will not be eligible to receive a booster shot by February 28, you will still be able to access campus. TC will require you to upload booster shot documentation within one month of the date when you become eligible.

  • See an explanation of eligibility below.


If you received an approved exemption for the COVID-19 vaccine, that exemption will also apply to the booster shot. No further action is required.

If you received an initial COVID-19 vaccine(s) but would like to request an exemption from the booster shot, follow the instructions on this page to request an exemption.

  • The College allows exemptions for individuals who cannot be vaccinated for a medical reason, a sincerely held religious belief, their pregnancy status or because they are currently breastfeeding.

As the recent surge of COVID-19 demonstrated, the Omicron variant of the virus is highly transmissible. However, data shows that a COVID-19 booster shot greatly reduces the risk of severe illness and death. Thank you for doing your part to protect yourself and others by getting a booster shot.
