COVID-19 vaccine update: Get vaccinated now
The American College Health Association recommends students get vaccinated as soon as possible.
To sign up for your vaccination, visit the Student Health website, where you can view the vaccine schedule. When you sign in to MyUI, you should choose to schedule on a day that Student Health is providing the vaccine you wish to receive. Student Health is currently offering single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine and the two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
Reminder: Student Health can also provide a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to students regardless of where they received their first dose. Doses must still be three weeks apart, but this gives you more flexibility and may be more convenient. If you need a second dose of Moderna, please call Student Health at 319-335-9704.
If you want to get your first dose on campus through Student Health and your second dose elsewhere, you should check with a provider in your home county and state to ensure availability. Then get vaccinated as soon as possible.
You are now able to schedule your first COVID-19 vaccination appointment with the University Employee Health Clinic by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 319-356-3631, Option 3.
If you receive your vaccine elsewhere prior to your scheduled appointment, or need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, contact the University Employee Health Clinic.
For more information, please visit the COVID-19 hub for vaccine information on The Loop.
We urge you to get vaccinated as soon as you can.
The university continues to monitor self-reported COVID-19 testing data on campus, while also tracking state, region, and national COVID-19 infection rates.
University of Iowa self-reported COVID-19 testing
These data reflect new cases since May 3, 2021.
The University of Iowa has published an updated snapshot of self-reported positive COVID-19 tests from faculty, staff, and students.
Number of self-reported cases of COVID-19
- New cases: 1
- Total cases: 3,181
- New cases: 0
- Total cases: 493
These numbers reflect only self-reported positive or presumed positive COVID-19 tests from UI faculty, staff, and students on the academic campus since Aug. 18, 2020. These data will not match data reported by UI Hospitals & Clinics or by the Iowa Department of Public Health for several reasons, including different testing time intervals and geographic scope. Students who also are employees of the university are only reported in the student number to avoid double counting. The UI has more than 30,000 students and nearly 30,000 employees. Many employees continue to work remotely but have self-reported to authorize sick leave.
Number of residence hall students in quarantine: 0*
Number of residence hall students in self-isolation: 1**
*Quarantine: Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others.
**Self-isolation: Isolation is used to separate people infected.
