To Enter Your COVID-19 Vaccine or Booster Information and Date of Vaccination:

    1. Select the “Enter My COVID-19 Vaccine Information” button.enter-vacc-info-button.jpg
  1. Click the green upload button and attach an image of your COVID-19 vaccine record or document. You can edit the image by rotating the image to the left or right, if necessary.

AFFILIATES

Affiliates (vendors, contractors, visitors and other individuals affiliated with Carnegie Mellon, but who are not employees or students) are exempt from uploading any COVID-19 Vaccination Information into the database.

Affiliates who are not fully vaccinated must comply with COVID-19 mitigation protocols, including wearing facial coverings, practicing physical distancing, completing CMU's daily self-assessment (PDF) and participating in Tartan Testing each week they will be on campus.


HealthConnect is CMU’s secure online portal for University Health Services (our students’ primary care provider). We have expanded the system’s functionality so that faculty and staff will also use HealthConnect to enter COVID-19 vaccine information. HealthConnect is housed on campus and monitored by Carnegie Mellon's Information Security Office (ISO). Access to the stored information is limited to authorized personnel and treated confidentially.

If you have issues entering your COVID-19 vaccine information into the database, contact drbc@andrew.cmu.edu.
