COVID-19 Vaccination | COVID-19 Booster Shots

Am I eligible for a booster shot?

Use this flowchart to determine your eligibility. Family and friends of Loyola employees or students cannot request a booster appointment at this time. Please check here for your closest availability.

What vaccine are you providing at Student Health Services?

Moderna. CDC’s recommendations now allow for mix and match dosing for booster shots. You can read the full CDC guidelines here. If you would like to receive another type of manufacturer Loyola’s Vaccine FAQ page has a link to local vaccine sites.

What do I need to do prior to my appointment to receive my 3rd dose?

Log into your Medicat Public Health Portal and under the heading/tab FORMS, and complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Consent.

If it’s your first time at Student Health, you will also need to complete forms 1–4:

  1. Assignment of Benefits
  2. Consent to Treatment
  3. HIPAA Privacy Policy Acknowledgement
  4. Third-party Billing

Under the heading/tab INSURANCE, enter your policy information and upload a picture of your insurance card.

Lastly, if you haven’t done so already - upload proof you completed your COVID-19 vaccination series. Under the heading/tab UPLOAD, attach an image such as your CDC white vaccine card or snapshot of LA Wallet app.

What if I lost my CDC white card?

We will give you a new card with your booster dose.

What’s my username/password for my patient portal?

  • Your username is your full Loyola email address. For example:  
  • Your password is your Microsoft password. If you have changed your Microsoft password, use what you changed it to. If you have not yet changed your Microsoft password, the default password is the first two letters of your first name, followed by the last 4 digits of your social security number, then an uppercase LU. For example: abXXXXLU

Help! I can’t log into my patient portal!

If you cannot sign in, go to to reset your Microsoft password. If you need assistance, please email using your loyno email address or call the Help Desk at 504.865.2255.

There are no available appointments on the schedule!

We will continue to offer additional opportunities for booster shots as we receive additional supplies of vaccine. Please continue to check here for availability.
