Community Vaccine Clinics

Creighton University and its clinical health care partner, CHI Health, are serving as COVID-19 community vaccine clinics in partnership with the Douglas County Health Department.

Vaccinations are by APPOINTMENT ONLY. See the eligibility requirements and register through the Douglas County Health Department’s COVID-19 Vaccine Registration Site or by calling the health department’s information line at 402.444.3400.

Have You Received a COVID-19 Vaccine?

All students, faculty and staff should upload confirmation of COVID-19 vaccinations to the BirdHouse. For each dose of vaccine received, please record the date of your vaccination and upload a picture of your vaccination card. An instructional video on how to update your immunization records is available on the BirdHouse website.

On-Campus COVID-19 Testing Center

The testing center is now operating at its regularly scheduled hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Learn more about surveillance and walk-in testing.

Report Symptoms through #CampusClear Self-Screening

All nonremote students, faculty and staff are required to complete a daily self-screening and report COVID-19 symptoms and exposure through the #CampusClear app or the #CampusClear web interface. Students who fail to complete their screening as required will receive a noncompliance warning.
