Which COVID-19 vaccine will I receive?
CDC recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older be vaccinated for protection against COVID-19. Details on which vaccines are available for each age group and how to stay up to date on recommended COVID-19 vaccines can be found on the CDC’s Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines Including Boosters page.
The Vaccination Clinic is currently administering the following vaccine type(s):
- Pfizer-BioNTech 2023 monovalent vaccine for individuals ages 6 months+
- Moderna 2023 monovalent vaccine for individuals ages 6 months+ (pending shipping)
- Novavax 2023 monovalent vaccine for individuals 12 years or older (pending FDA approval)
What should I expect during my vaccination appointment?
- Immediately alert staff if you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.
- Facial coverings are currently optional when visiting the Boise State Vaccination Clinic.
- Arrive on time for your vaccination appointment as scheduled.
- You will be able to download or receive a paper copy of the fact sheet that tells you more about the specific COVID-19 vaccine you are being offered. Each authorized COVID-19 vaccine has its own fact sheet that contains information to help you understand the risks and benefits of receiving that specific vaccine.
- You should receive a vaccination card or print out during your appointment that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. Save this documentation as a record of your vaccination(s).
- Information will be provided to you about V-safe— an optional, free, smartphone-based tool that lets you check-in with the CDC after you get vaccinated for COVID-19. You can quickly tell the CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from the CDC may call to check on you and get more information. V-safe will also remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one.
- It’s normal to have mild to moderate side effects for a few days after getting a vaccine.
- It takes time for your body to build immunity and protection after any vaccination. You are considered immune two weeks after you get your last dose (second dose in a two-dose series or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) of the vaccine.
How much will the COVID-19 vaccine cost?
Details can be found on our Vaccination Services and Charges page.
What should I do if I am not feeling well or if I have been asked to isolate or quarantine?
The purpose of COVID-19 vaccination is to help protect yourself and others from getting sick.

Instead, follow the instructions in your confirmation email to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
Should I take time off when I get the vaccine?
Some people report mild flu-like symptoms after receiving the vaccine. If you have concerns, you should consider scheduling your vaccine when you have the following day off.
What happens if I lose my vaccination card?
Individuals who were vaccinated in Idaho can view, download, and share their immunization records from Idaho’s Immunization Reminder Information System (IRIS) using a health record mobile app called Docket®. To learn more about electronically accessing your COVID-19 vaccination information and Docket®, please visit the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s Immunization Records page. You can not receive a copy of a vaccination from this website if that vaccination was administered in another state.
A replacement COVID-19 vaccination card request can be processed from Boise State if you were vaccinated at the Public Health Clinic.
If you are in Boise or the surrounding area and would like a replacement COVID-19 vaccine card, please contact the Boise State Vaccination Clinic at 208-426-2969 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time to obtain a replacement card. Then bring a valid government-issued ID to Campus School at your scheduled appointment time and a replacement card will be issued on site.
If you are unable to visit the clinic in person, we can send you an electronic copy of your vaccination card (we do NOT send CDC-issued vaccine cards in the mail).
To receive this electronic copy, the person whose record is being requested should email (if you are a Boise State community member please send this information using a Boise State email address) email@example.com and provide the following information:
- the full name of the person whose record is being requested
- student or employee ID number
- mailing address used when registering for the vaccination to be used as identification verification
- a copy of the following acknowledgement statement: I acknowledge that communications via email over the internet are not secure and that although it is unlikely, there is a possibility that information I include in this email can be intercepted and read by other parties besides the person to whom it is addressed.
If you were vaccinated at a location other than Boise State University, Extra Mile Arena, or at one of Boise State’s pop-up clinics, please contact that location to inquire as to the process to replace a lost card.
