Students are now eligible to sign up for on-campus vaccinations at StudentCOVIDVax.unc.edu on a first come, first serve basis on one of the following dates:
- Wednesday, March 31, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
- Thursday, April 1, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
- Monday, April 5, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 6, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
The vaccine clinic will be located at the Student Union in the former Wendy's restaurant location.
The University will receive 2,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to allocate to students living in any congregate living settings — including residence halls, fraternity and sorority housing and other off-campus congregate housing.
Students who sign up for their appointment will also be directed to register in North Carolina’s COVID-19 Vaccine Management System. This system allows for the state to keep track of who has received their vaccine.
The vaccine will be free of cost to students through their insurance provider. Students should bring their physical health insurance card along if possible, or have a photo of the card along. If a student does not have health insurance, they can get their vaccine free of cost through Campus Health.
Students should also bring their phone and make sure to have a snack and hydrate prior to their appointment.
Students should block out an hour of time for their vaccination appointment due to the check-in time and observation period after the vaccine administration, Director of Pharmacy and Professional Services Amy Sauls said.
After receiving the vaccine, it takes two weeks to be considered "fully vaccinated." Students vaccinated on campus should continue to follow Community Standards and get tested through the Carolina Together Testing Program.
