With COVID-19 booster shots now available, UTD is asking faculty, staff and students who have received boosters to update their vaccination status online.

Comets can submit updates on the new Voluntary COVID-19 Booster Reporting Form. Similar to the original Voluntary Vaccine Reporting Form, it asks for the type of shot (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, etc.) and date the shot was received. Comets can submit proof of their booster if they would like, but it is not required.

Individuals 18 years or older are eligible for boosters six months after receiving primary Pfizer or Moderna shots or two months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson shot. Those who received Pfizer or Moderna shots must also be living in long-term care settings, have underlying medical conditions or live or work in high-risk settings to be eligible for a booster at the moment.
