Working in cooperation with the city of Philadelphia, Temple University is dispensing COVID-19 vaccines in limited quantities to those who meet city eligibility guidelines.
Philadelphia is now in Phase 2 of the vaccine rollout, which means every city resident over the age of 16 is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone who works in Philadelphia and can provide proof of that employment is also eligible to receive the vaccine.
Please be aware that due to city requirements, at the present time Temple can only offer COVID-19 vaccines to employees and students who are residents of the city. If you have already been vaccinated, please upload your vaccine information to the patient health portal.
Vaccine Distribution at Temple
As part of Philadelphia’s plans to boost distribution, Temple has opened a vaccine clinic at the James S. White Hall on Main Campus. The clinic is open Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Students, faculty and staff should not rely solely on Temple for a COVID-19 vaccination. For the time being, the university will receive a very limited supply of vaccines. We urge all members of the Temple community to also sign up with their local communities and health providers to obtain a vaccination.
