To ensure the safest experience for all on campus, the University is requiring all new and returning students, faculty, administrators, and staff to complete their primary COVID-19 vaccination series of any World Health Organization (WHO) approved COVID vaccines. In addition, Dominican University expects students, faculty, and staff to receive their COVID vaccination booster within two weeks of eligibility.
Verifying Your Status
To verify your status, proof of primary vaccinations and boosters should be submitted via Dominican University’s Medicat Portal
Here is how to do this after logging in to the Medicat Portal using the same user name and password you use to access my.dc.edu.
STEP 1: Click on the Immunizations tab and select Enter Dates from the drop-down menu. Click on the date box for the specific vaccine you received and enter the date of the vaccines you received.
STEP 2: Click on the Upload tab. From the Document drop-down menu select “Proof of COVID Vaccine” for students or “Proof of COVID Vaccine for employees.” Select and upload the documentation file.
If you are unable to upload your proof of vaccination, contact the Health Center for assistance.
Testing is available at many walk-in clinics and pharmacies throughout Rockland County. You can also test yourself with at home COVID tests available at pharmacies.
Masks are now optional throughout the Dominican University campus, including classrooms. Everyone is encouraged to respect others’ decisions regarding mask wearing. Masks will continue to be required in the Dominican University Health Center.
The Rockland County Health Department is following current CDC COVID guidelines which require people who test positive for COVID-19 or are exposed to someone with COVID-19 to wear masks. Further information on what to do if you test positive or are exposed to someone who tested positive is outlined below under FAQ’s Health Questions.
