Princeton is engaged in efforts to respond to the impacts of coronavirus. Our top priority is to support the health and well-being of our community as we continue to advance our teaching and research mission.
The University urges faculty and staff who are tested for COVID-19 by any healthcare provider in any jurisdiction to notify University Health Services immediately at email@example.com.
This is an exceptionally stressful time, so do not hesitate to make use of the resources below. For additional information related to benefits, learning opportunities, and time off during the pandemic, refer to:
Vaccines to protect again COVID-19 are now available in limited quantities. Individuals who meet their state’s eligibility requirements for the vaccine can visit VaccineFinder for the latest information on vaccine availability in their area and information on how to schedule an appointment. VaccineFinder is a free, online service that works in partnership with clinics, pharmacies, and health departments to provide accurate and up-to-date information about vaccination services and appointments.
In addition, individuals enrolled in a Princeton health plan have access to Castlight. Castlight’s Vaccine Center is a new feature within the app that answers questions about vaccine safety, its effectiveness, and allows individuals to find the most up-to-date information on where vaccines are available in their community. Register for Castlight or download the Castlight app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
The University is still considering whether to require all faculty, staff, researchers, and others present on campus during the 2021-22 academic year to provide proof of having received an FDA-authorized vaccine. In the interim, the University has developed an online tool called VacStatus to allow faculty and staff to upload their vaccination records. Participation in this program is voluntary at this time, but everyone is encouraged to provide the information, as the data will help the University with operational planning and enable it to make informed decisions about the public health interventions required in the fall, including the structure of the testing program. For more information, refer to the Vice President for Human Resources and Dean of the Faculty's April 27 message to employees.
