Important COVID-19 Information


All students, staff and faculty are eligible for COVID-19 testing after exposures or suspicious symptoms. COVID testing for community members may be recommended as part of a visit with a nurse practitioner depending on symptoms, exposure and vaccination status.

SXU Students and Employees Only: If you need a COVID-19 test please use our COVID-19 Reporting Form and someone from the Health Center will call you back to get more information and to set up an appointment if necessary. Please call 773-298-3712 with any questions. Learn more about COVID-19 Testing and Vaccines at the SXU Health Center.


All SXU students, faculty and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms suspicious of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and are not fully vaccinated should stay home and fill out our HIPAA-secure COVID-19 Reporting Form. Once we have received the report someone from the Health Center will call you back as soon as we can to get more information and set up testing if needed.

COVID-19 Vaccine

We are fortunate to have a supply of COVID-19 vaccines from the Chicago Department of Public Health, and are administering them Monday through Friday. We also can go on-site with your school or company! Call 773-298-3712 to schedule or book an appointment on ZocDoc. Due to increased supply we can usually accommodate same-day appointments and walk-ins. All are welcome!

Currently we are administering the Pfizer vaccines (ages 12 and up) Monday through Friday and Moderna vaccines (ages 18 and up) on Thursdays only. Learn more about COVID-19 Testing and Vaccines at the SXU Health Center.

Additional and booster doses: The CDC now recommends that anyone who is moderately to severely immunocompromised receive a third dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) at least 28 days after their second dose. The SXU Health Center is offering these appointments to anyone who meets this criteria, but it is first important to speak with your doctors/clinical team to determine the best timing of the third dose. PLEASE NOTE: The third additional dose for immunocompromised people are different from booster doses. These are expected to start in the fall for the general population, 8 months after your second dose.

Masks Required

Masking is required in the SXU Health Center. If you do not have a mask at your appointment, one will be given to you.


Depending on your symptoms, known exposure to COVID-19, and vaccination status you may be offered a telemedicine (secure video link) visit first.

Please see SXU's Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Campus Plan page for the most recent updates.
