Notre Dame Vaccine Administration Center

How do I receive my vaccine on campus?

  • Look for an email from noreply@coronavirus.in.gov with subject line “You are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine at your campus location."
  • Cancel any off-campus first-dose appointments. You can’t schedule an appointment on campus until you do.
  • Complete your registration online to save time at the Vaccinate Administration Center.

As part of the State’s large employer vaccination program, the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) recently informed the University that Notre Dame, along with other colleges and universities in the state, will be permitted to set up a vaccination center on campus in mid-April to serve students, faculty, and staff. The vaccination center will be housed inside Compton Family Ice Arena.

The IDOH has indicated that the University will receive enough Pfizer vaccine for every student—undergraduate, professional, and graduate—to be fully vaccinated with the requisite two doses before the conclusion of the spring semester. Students are encouraged to use the Notre Dame vaccination center instead of going off-campus to be vaccinated. 
The campus vaccination center is also available to accommodate some appointments for benefits-eligible faculty and staff. However, if you are a faculty or staff member and are already scheduled to be vaccinated at a local vaccination site, please keep that appointment. Where possible, faculty and staff are encouraged to continue to utilize the vaccination sites in the local community. For those faculty and staff for whom accessing a local vaccination site is challenging, we can accommodate you at the campus center. 

First doses of the Pfizer vaccine for students will be administered at the on-campus vaccination center from Thursday, April 8 through Thursday, April 15. Second doses will be administered from Thursday, April 29 through Thursday, May 6.

Questions and Answers

If I live outside the state of Indiana, can I still receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the Notre Dame vaccination center? 

Students studying in South Bend whose permanent residence is out of state are eligible to receive the vaccine. Students are strongly encouraged to use the Notre Dame center to receive their vaccine. When registering for the vaccine, students should sign up using their local Notre Dame or South Bend address, and take both their driver's license and NDID to their vaccination appointment. 

Benefits-eligible faculty or staff living in another state, should sign up for the vaccine using your Notre Dame address and email. Take both your driver’s license and NDID to your vaccination appointment.

How do I sign up to be vaccinated at the on-campus vaccination center? 

Students will receive an email from Zotec Partners with a personal link to register for an appointment to receive your first dose of the vaccine. This link is for your use only and should not be shared. 

After students have had the opportunity to sign-up for appointments at the Notre Dame center, the opportunity will be extended to benefits-eligible faculty and staff. The process will be the same as for students. 

What should I bring to my vaccine appointment at the Notre Dame site?

You will need to bring your driver’s license or passport and NDID to your appointment.

Do I need to bring my insurance card to my vaccine appointment at the Notre Dame site?

No. When prompted for insurance during the registration for your appointment, please select “Continue Without Insurance.” You will not be charged any fees for receiving the vaccine on-campus.

If I am vaccinated at the on-campus vaccination site, will documentation of my vaccination automatically be uploaded to PyraMed?

No, there is no automatic feed from Zotec into PyraMed, so you will need to upload your documentation.

During the fifteen minute observation period after your second dose, it is strongly encouraged that you take the time to upload an image of your vaccine card during that time. You can do this through your mobile device or laptop. Instructions and support on how to do this will be provided.
