Vaccination rates? Student Health portals? Another email from Pitt’s COVID-19 team? It can be daunting, and sometimes confusing.

Pitt’s COVID-19 Medical Response Office released data Wednesday showing that, so far, only about half of students, faculty and staff have submitted documentation proving that they received a COVID-19 vaccine. But officials said it’s likely this rate will increase as more people upload their cards.

Students who aren’t vaccinated — or don’t provide proof that they are — are subject to additional safety rules this semester, such as mandatory weekly virus testing and wearing a mask outdoors.

With classes set to start next week and move-in even sooner, The Pitt News compiled a step-by-step guide on how to submit your COVID-19 vaccination record to the University.

  1. Head to Pitt’s Student Health Services Portal.
  2. Click on the “Immunization” tab in the upper left corner.
