Vaccine Information

We strongly encourage all members of the QU community to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Medical advice from national health authorities and the CDC indicates that vaccines are safe, highly protective, and should be received by all except those with very particular medical conditions or allergies. For us to return to pre-COVID, on-campus experiences, we need to reach high levels of vaccine coverage; the more students, faculty and staff receive vaccinations, the faster we will achieve this.

Who is Eligible?

All residents of CT 16 or older are eligible as of April 1 and are strongly encouraged to get a vaccine. This includes all students, faculty and staff. We strongly encourage all members of the QU community to get vaccinated as soon as possible. 

How to Sign Up

  1. Registering through the state’s Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).

  2. Calling Connecticut’s Vaccine Appointment Assist Line at 877-918-2224.

  3. Scheduling directly with a provider — some providers are offering direct scheduling.

We recommend students bring a QU student ID to the testing center on the day of their appointment.

Questions and Information about the Vaccine

Review a list of frequently asked vaccination questions prepared by the Department of Public Health (DPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and a list of QU-specific questions.

Please remember: Regardless of a person’s vaccination status, all our on-campus COVID-19 safety measures, including mandatory mask wearing, physical distancing, and personal handwashing will still apply to everyone for the remainder of the spring semester.
