You must complete all three steps below to receive your VaxPass.

CUNY VaxPass is available through the Everbridge mobile app. If you entered campus anytime this past year, you likely used the Everbridge app to complete the symptom checker. Although the Everbridge symptom checker is no longer required to enter campus, you must use Everbridge to receive your VaxPass. If you already completed your vaccine verification and have the Everbridge app installed, close it, start a fresh session and proceed to the Get Your VaxPass section below.

Vaccine Verification

Follow CUNY's vaccine verification guide for faculty and staff or students. In summary:

  1. Sign in to CUNYfirst

  2. Click Vaccination Verification n the CUNYfirst Menu

  3. Upload your vaccination documentation as instructed.

  4. Brooklyn College HRS will review your vaccination documentation within one business day. An approved status (below) is required to receive your VaxPass:

Vaccine verification may take up to 48 hours to process.

Brooklyn College HRS will make every attempt to review your vaccine documentation within one business day. It takes up to an additional business day before the HRS approval is available to VaxPass. Thus it could take up to two business days, from the time you submit your vaccine verification, to be eligible for your VaxPass.

Your student status supersedes your employee status.

If you are registered as a CUNY student at another CUNY school, your student status supersedes your employee status, and your vaccination records need to be approved by the Location Vaccine Authority (LVA) liaisons at the campus where you are enrolled as a student. Find your LVA liaison and reach out them as soon as possible.
