Recent Updates: The New School has plans to re-open its New York City campus for in-person teaching and learning in fall 2021. Please check the Parsons Paris website for information about our Paris campus. Learn more.

  • The university is actively monitoring COVID-19 vaccination availability and guidelines in New York to ensure that members of our campus community have access to vaccinations as soon as possible.

    For the safety of all, we strongly encourage our community members to get the vaccine as soon as they are eligible.  This official website provides the most up-to-date information. Additional information resources are listed below.

    Phase 1A vaccinations: This phase continues to roll-out. Phase 1A includes health care workers, residents and staff at nursing homes, and other groups of essential workers. It also includes these university groups:

    • Campus health employees with patient-facing roles (including clinicians, administrative staff, and any others who interact with patients in person)
    • Campus staff who administer COVID-19 tests (those who actually do swabs for sample collection)
    • Students on clinical rotations who have patient-facing roles
    • Campus staff or/ volunteers who administers COVID-19 vaccines (those actually doing the injections, not solely in administrative roles)

    Phase 1B vaccinations have also begun.  As of yesterday, January 11, New York State announced that the state will now begin scheduling Phase 1B vaccinations. Per state guidance, the early stage of this phase includes the following groups:

    • People 65 and older
    • People who are immunocompromised
    • Pre-K through 12th grade teachers and education workers
    • Licensed and registered child care providers
    • School-bus drivers
    • First responders (local police, State Police, Sheriff’s Office employees, professional and volunteer firefighters)
    • EMS workers, whether professional or volunteer
    • Public transit workers (airline and airport employees, passenger railroad employees, subway and mass transit employees, ferry employees, Port Authority employees, and public bus drivers)
    • Public safety workers
    • In-person college faculty or instructor (more guidance is pending on the level of in-person teaching or interaction required for eligibility)

    If you think you are eligible, please complete this New York State form to find a site to be vaccinated, or click here to find New York City vaccination sites. The state has issued some language indicating that individuals seeking vaccination may be asked to prove their eligibility via employee ID card, a letter from their employer, or a pay stub. This will likely vary by vaccination location. You can find more information here.

    Additionally, New York State (NYS) and New York City (NYC) have each launched hotlines which may be used by eligible members of the community to schedule a vaccination appointment:

    NYC: (877) VAX- 4NYC (1-877-829-4692)
    NYS: (833) NYS - 4VAX (1-833-697-4829)

    Currently, there is no centralized online system to schedule appointments once eligibility has been confirmed. As the vaccine rollout continues, a more centralized online system may be developed. We do expect all higher education faculty and staff to be included in Phase 1B as it progresses. The university will continue to closely monitor all aspects of the vaccine rollout and provide any links and timely updates to the community.

    We are in the process of creating a way for students, faculty and staff who receive the vaccine to inform us that they have done so in accordance with applicable laws and guidance, and more information about how to do that will follow soon.
