  • All University employees essential to University departments.
  • All student workers working in various departments that interact with the Fordham community.
  • Effective 8 a.m. April 6, all New York state residents age 18 and older.  
Doctor Urgent Medical Care is located at 538 E. Fordham Road, just across from the Rose Hill campus, near Bathgate Avenue. The practice is currently offering the Moderna vaccine. Please feel free to park in our University garage if you choose to drive to Rose Hill for your vaccination appointment.

Please bring your insurance card and Fordham ID with you on the date of your vaccination.  
If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, please send your name, cell number. and email address to Nancy Perri at and we will arrange a vaccine appointment for you.

Since the eligibility groups have expanded, and Fordham University has not been able to secure supplies of the vaccine, we urge you to take advantage of this opportunity. If you do not wish to participate in this offering, we encourage you to sign up at any other vaccination location convenient for you.
