Covid Vaccinations

All CUNY employees are now eligible to receive the COVID Vaccine.  Additional locations are currently underway, and we will updated site information as it becomes available.  To book a vaccination appointment either use:

  • Bronx/Queens/Staten Island
  • Brooklyn/Manhattan
    Enter your employee ID number (this is the number you used to set up your NYCERs account) to unlock appointments at employee-only clinics.  Reserve an appointment at a location that is most convenient to you.

Vaccination Verification

BMCC Faculty and staff should upload their proof of vaccination through CUNYfirst. Once uploaded, the Office of Human Resources will review the verification.

  • Approval status should be available after 24 hours in CUNYfirst. If your submission was not approved, please read the reason for rejection carefully and resubmit.
  • Once approved, your BMCC Photo ID will be synced with the verification so you can simply swipe your ID on the turnstile (as you did before) when you enter the BMCC campus.


  • In order to upload a photo of your vaccination card, you must have received either BOTH doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or a single shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
  • To be considered FULLY vaccinated, you must wait 14 days after your SECOND dose (Pfizer or Moderna) or SINGLE dose (Johnson & Johnson) coming to the BMCC campus.

If you have not been vaccinated, Faculty and Staff need to take a weekly COVID test, and test negative within the past 7 daysto be allowed onto any BMCC campus.  The test MUST be performed by one of the 20 CUNY-approved locations.
