Dear Members of the Campus Community, 

The deadline for submitting required booster documentation to the university was Jan. 14, 2022, for eligible students, faculty and staff.

For anyone who still needs to get a booster, such as those who recently became eligible, we are holding an on-campus clinic this coming Wednesday, Jan. 26.

This opportunity is available to students, faculty and staff ONLY. 

We strongly encourage anyone who still needs to get a booster to take advantage of this opportunity.

Once receiving the booster, please be sure that you upload your documentation to the university using the emailed instructions for studentsfaculty and staff.

Receiving the booster at the clinic on campus does not generate a notification of your status to the university (it will not be submitted automatically).

Reminder: 1 Day Remains to Upload your COVID Booster Documentation

Dear Continuing Undergraduate and Graduate Students,

Please disregard this message if you have already provided documentation of your COVID booster. 

The Jan. 14 deadline to upload documentation of your COVID booster on the Health and Wellness Center (HWC) portal is rapidly approaching: 

4 days remain to submit your information on the Patient Portal. Please follow these instructions carefully to complete this process.  

As a reminder, Lehigh requires all eligible students, faculty and staff who did not receive an approved medical or religious exemption to receive a COVID booster for the Spring 2022 semester

as an extension of the university’s COVID vaccination requirement. Please monitor CDC recommendations for eligibility and timeframes. 

Students who become eligible for a booster AFTER Jan. 14 will need to get their booster shot and provide documentation within 14 days after they become eligible.

If your medical or religious circumstances have changed since receiving the original vaccination series and you intend to submit a new request for a medical or religious exemption

from the booster requirement, you are required to provide additional information as described on the FAQ linked on our Vaccination Resources Center: "

Can I submit a medical or religious exemption request for the COVID booster?"

Thank you for your prompt attention to this important step toward returning to campus.

Instructions for Students - Booster Documentation

A message from the Health and Wellness Center to students. 

Dear Students,

Many of you have uploaded your Booster documentation and are on track for a safe return to campus!  THANK YOU!  No additional action is necessary unless you receive a secure message from the Health & Wellness Center's patient portal.

For all other students, please read the following VERY CAREFULLY to ensure smooth and accurate upload of the required booster-related documentation. 

UPLOADING DOCUMENTATION:  For new uploads, the best way to upload documentation:

  1. When in the patient portal, click on ‘Forms’

  2. Select and complete the ‘COVID-19 BOOSTER’ Form and attach your booster documentation

NOTE: When using this form, there is no need to upload your booster documentation separately via document upload.  Also, there is no need to upload your COVID-19 primary vaccination documentation again, unless specifically requested or is on the same documentation as your booster information.

COVID-19 DOCUMENTATION- For all documentation uploaded:

  1. Full name, birth date, manufacturer name and vaccination date must be on the uploaded documentation.

  2. If the provider that completed your documentation entered the information on a ‘Reminder Card’, please be sure to upload both the front (primary vaccination documentation) and back of the card (booster documentation so that your name and birth date is visible for HWC review.

  3. Do not upload ‘Reminder Cards’ for future appointments. Submit documentation only for dates of actual booster vaccinations.

OTHER IMPORTANT UPLOAD INFORMATION:  

  1. Submit your booster documentation once. Submitting multiple times will increase review time.

  2. Please allow 3-5 business days for your documentation to be reviewed.

  3. If our HWC staff has any questions, we will send you a secure message in the secure patient portal.  

  4. Please update your cell phone number in PyraMED so that you can be alerted when we send you a message. 

  5. You will not be notified when we review and approve your documentation; you can check back on your portal to review your immunization compliance status.
