How to Schedule a Covid-19 Vaccine Appointment

Campus medical professionals are administering Covid-19 vaccinations to the campus community based on the vaccine rollout plan.

Georgia Tech is administering the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine to faculty, staff, and students as well as their spouses, domestic partners, and dependent children ages 12 years and older. Dependent children ages 12 and older must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Based on current vaccine availability, we have opened new vaccination appointment slots on mytest.gatech.edu for those who are eligible to receive the vaccine and will accept appointments until all slots are taken.

To receive a notification when new appointments are available, subscribe at mytest.status.gatech.edu. Once you subscribe, be sure to respond to the confirmation email.

Preparing for Your Vaccination Appointment

  1. Remember to bring the following items with you to your appointment.
  2. Please review FDA Information Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers and package insert for the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine (also known as brand name Comirnaty).
  3. Allow for a 30-minute waiting period after your injection. Most people will need to wait only 15 minutes, but some will need to wait 30 minutes based on past history of allergic reactions. Similar to other vaccines, allergic reactions, although rare, are possible and you will be monitored for any potential reactions.
  4. When you arrive at the vaccine clinic, you do not need to check in for your appointment through MyTest.
