COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

Categories of eligible individuals are set by New York state; Adelphi does not determine who can get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Due to a limited supply of the vaccine, New York state is following a phased distribution plan for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Eligible individuals include the following groups:

  • Beginning March 11, faculty and staff members who are 50 years of age or older became eligible, along with all in-person college faculty and essential in-person staff.
  • Beginning Tuesday, March 30, New Yorkers age 30 and older are eligible to be vaccinated.
  • Beginning Tuesday, April 6, all New Yorkers age 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated.
  • All student health employees in patient-facing roles are eligible for vaccination, regardless of age.

At this time, the demand for vaccines outpaces available supply but criteria for vaccination eligibility are being expanded and the availability of vaccines is improving.

Vaccine appointments are released daily. Individuals are encouraged to check NY vaccination sites through the state’s Am I Eligible tool, as well as regional pharmacies including Walgreens and CVS for available appointments.

The process for determining your eligibility is managed by New York state and making an appointment for vaccination can be done through the state or authorized vaccination sites.

To schedule your appointment, please call Adelphi Health Services at 516.877.6002 between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, or email healthservicescenter@adelphi.edu.

Option 3 – Through an Authorized Vaccination Site (Including Hospitals and Pharmacies)

  • Adelphi is offering a limited supply of vaccines to community members on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, individuals should contact Health Services at 516.877.6002 or by email at healthservicescenter@adelphi.edu.
  • You can check for available locations on New York state’s COVID-19 website.
  • Vaccinations are currently being administered by New York state at several SUNY locations, including Stony Brook University in Suffolk County, as well as Jones Beach State Park in Nassau County, the Javitts Center in New York City, and Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens. Some health systems are offering the vaccine, including Northwell Health, and Mount Sinai South Nassau. Select Walgreen’s and CVS pharmacies are also providing limited vaccines to eligible populations.

Together with the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities in New York (CICU), Adelphi leadership continues to advocate for increased quantities of vaccines and increased availability to the higher education sector.

The CDC continues to recommend that individuals who have been vaccinated should still wear a face mask that covers the mouth and nose. The requirement to wear a mask at Adelphi locations – as described in our NYS-approved Master Restart Plan – remains strictly in effect, along with requirements for social distancing, daily screening via the AU2GO app, and good hand hygiene.

Adelphi was highly successful at preventing the spread of the virus among our on-campus community over the course of the past year. (Our positive rate has remained well below 3 percent.) We should all continue to follow established health and safety protocols—washing your hands, wearing your face mask and maintaining social distance.
