Vaccination FAQs

After scheduling your appointment, you will have the opportunity to complete pre-appointment registration online, including supplying your insurance information, before your appointment. We strongly encourage you to do this to speed up the check-in process when you arrive at the vaccination site.

You will need to show a photo ID (PUID card or other state-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or passport) and your insurance information if you have medical insurance. You do not need to bring your physical insurance card, only your plan information. You will not be billed for the vaccination.

Hammond

The state has allocated the Pfizer vaccine for our clinic, which requires two doses administered 21 to 23 days apart. We will schedule your second dose at the vaccine clinic immediately after receiving your first dose.

Westville

We will schedule your second dose at the vaccine clinic immediately after receiving your first dose.

Other Scheduling Considerations

  • As you’re scheduling, remember to consider your individual circumstance and bear in mind factors such as:
    • Are you planning to leave campus at the conclusion of the semester or are you staying for the summer?
    • If you are leaving, will you be able to receive both doses before you depart or just the first, knowing there is a window of 21-23 days between doses?
  • If you are not able to receive both doses before you leave, you will need to schedule your second dose of the Pfizer vaccination at your summer place of residence, so you should be sure the Pfizer vaccine is available where you will be.
  • Consider your end of semester academic schedule and plan your vaccination around critical deadlines and exams as appointments allow. Take note of dates you want to avoid — again, knowing that your second dose needs to be administered 21-23 days after your first.
  • Consider the potential impact of common and mild side effects on your classes, final projects and exams, particularly after the second dose, which can include fever or fatigue, generally subsiding within a day.

Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for student, faculty and staff volunteers to help at check-in. If you are interested in signing up to help our PNW community, please send an email to safereturn@pnw.edu.
