Pfizer Vaccine Available at the University Student Center

May 26, 2021


The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now available to GW students, faculty and staff and their family members at the University Student Center. You do not need to be a District of Columbia resident to receive the vaccine. 

The vaccine is available to those ages 12 and older at GW's asymptomatic COVID-19 test site. Appointments are not required. Hours of operation are below. 


Pfizer Vaccine Availability
University Student Center, Grand Ballroom
800 21st St., NW

Hours for GW community members:

Mondays and Wednesdays: 6:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 6 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Fridays: 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. (the test center will be closed on Fridays from June 1 - July 29)

As a reminder, GW requires all members of our community who will be in GW buildings daily or intermittently during the academic year to be fully vaccinated with a U.S. FDA- or World Health Organization-approved COVID-19 vaccine. Your vaccine documentation must be uploaded in the medical portal by August 1 so that your campus access is available by the start of fall semester.

To meet this deadline, you must start the Pfizer vaccine series by June 22 in order to be compliant with the university's vaccine requirement. Instructions for uploading your vaccine documentation after you have received the second dose are available here.
