COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Xavier student vaccination clinic at Cintas Center
Xavier students – you’ll have another “shot” to get fully vaccinated at Cintas Center. Appointments are limited and priority registration ends Sunday evening (April 11), so interested students are encouraged to register ASAP!
Governor Mike DeWine announced the State of Ohio’s plans to vaccinate college students before they conclude the semester. The first Xavier student vaccination clinic was offered this past Wednesday and at least 1,500 students were vaccinated. Xavier has partnered with the state and Kroger to offer priority registration each day for the vaccination clinic at Cintas Center on Thursday (April 15), Friday (April 16), and Saturday (April 17). Spots will be allocated for students until Sunday evening (April 11), so register ASAP if interested. All spots will open to the public for registration on Monday, April 12.
The allocation will be the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine and would allow our students to be fully vaccinated before the end of the spring semester.

- Thursday, April 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Friday, April 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Vaccination clinic details – please review before registering:
- Students should avoid scheduling a vaccine appointment during classes and clinicals if at all possible. Thursday, April 15 is an Academic Holiday with no classes scheduled (clinicals, practicums, student teaching, and internships may still be held).
- Students must bring the following information to their vaccine appointment:
- Insurance card
- Driver’s license (or other ID)
- Xavier ALL Card
- Students must be 18 years old and asymptomatic (showing no signs of COVID-19).
Vaccines are available to all currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, including those who live in a different state (EX: Kentucky, Indiana) or whose permanent address is in another state or country. All current Xavier students may register.
All students are encouraged to update their vaccination records once they have received their COVID-19 vaccine. Students who are two weeks after full vaccination (2nd shot of Pfizer or Moderna or 1 shot of J&J) who are identified as a close contact of a COVID-positive individual, may be eligible for exemption from quarantine. Students can access the Med+Proctor vaccination record tool and log in or create an account using their Xavier email address.
As more students are receiving COVID-19 vaccines, TriHealth has helpful information about vaccine side effects and reminds students that Student Health Services is available for medical support and guidance.
All members of the Xavier community will be able to receive a vaccine in Ohio. This includes students and employees who live in a different state (EX: Kentucky, Indiana) or whose permanent address is in another state or country.
As of Monday, March 29, all Ohioans 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
Vaccine supply and distribution is coordinated by the state of Ohio, working with local health agencies and businesses to schedule appointments and administer the vaccine. This de-centralized distribution process can make vaccine appointment registration confusing and difficult. Below are resources that could help the vaccine registration process.

TriHealth vaccine opportunity
Expanding on our long-standing partnership, TriHealth will help deliver COVID-19 vaccines to members of the Xavier community. TriHealth will designate vaccine appointment times each week for eligible members of the Xavier community, based on their vaccine allotment from the state. Appointments are limited and filled on a first come, first served basis. While this opportunity may make obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine easier once the community member is eligible, scheduling a vaccine through TriHealth is not required.
- Currently registered Xavier students and current Xavier employees may take advantage of this opportunity with TriHealth.
- As of Monday, March 29, all Ohioans 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
TriHealth registration process
- Vaccine-eligible members of the Xavier community should call TriHealth at 513-862-6843 (513-86 COVID) to schedule a vaccine appointment. The call center is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and weekends from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. TriHealth advises that call center volume is lower Monday-Thursday, so that could be a better time to call.
- When calling the TriHealth call center, select "option 2" and identify yourself as a Xavier student or employee. Be prepared to share your 9-digit Banner ID number to verify your Xavier status. (The 9-digit Banner ID can be found on the bottom right of your ALL Card.) TriHealth will also verify your eligibility based on the state's current vaccination phase.
- Bring photo ID and your Xavier ALL Card to the vaccination appointment to verify your identity and eligibility as a Xavier community member.
- Note: Vaccines for eligible Xavier students are coordinated through TriHealth's vaccine distribution program, not Student Health Services located at the HUB.
Both vaccine supplies and Ohio's distribution plans are changing regularly. As vaccine information changes, this vaccine webpage will be updated and an email will be sent to employees, students, and parents.
Is the COVID-19 vaccine required?
All members of the Xavier community are encouraged to get the vaccine when they are eligible, but it is not required.
Can I get a vaccine from Student Health Services in the HUB?
No. Vaccines for eligible Xavier students are coordinated through TriHealth’s vaccine distribution program, not Student Health Services located in the HUB. Vaccines are not available at the HUB.
