Covid-19 Updates

The latest from UNC Greensboro

Getting the safe, effective, and tested COVID-19 vaccine is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself, keep your family and others who are important to you safe, and move our campus and community toward a greater sense of normalcy. In addition to protecting yourself and your loved ones, as more people get vaccinated there is less opportunity for new variants of the virus to develop, and more hope that we can end the pandemic. At this time, all individuals in our community who are age 16 or older are eligible to be vaccinated.  

The UNCG Vaccine Clinic will be administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine over a 3 day period during the weeks of April 5th and April 12th.  The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is approved for individuals 18 and older.  As a reminder, there are now three vaccines that have been approved for use to protect against COVID-19 in the United States: the Pfizer vaccine (2 doses given 21 days apart; approved for those 16 and older), the Moderna vaccine (2 doses given 28 days apart; approved for those 18 and older), and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (1 dose; approved for those 18 and older).

UPDATE: Family members can also schedule appointments for these dates!

  • An appointment is required. Check your UNCG email for how to make an appointment. 
  • This link is for employees and students of Guilford County colleges and universities only. It will not be accessible on the NC DHHS Find My Spot website. Please be respectful of this opportunity and do not share this link with others.  
  • New appointments will be released on a weekly basis as available.

What to Expect

  • Check in at your scheduled appointment time. Please do not arrive early as we’ve designed the process to avoid long lines and crowds.  
  • There is no cost to you. 
  • You will be asked to complete some paperwork and provide your basic information so that the state of North Carolina can track vaccine distribution.
  • After you receive your vaccination, you will need to remain in the vaccination area to be observed for either 15 or 30 minutes, depending on your previous medical history. Adverse reactions are rare, but this requirement is in place out of an abundance of caution. Please plan accordingly time-wise. 
  • You will receive documentation of the vaccine and lot number that you receive. Please keep this in a safe place. 
  • UNCG employees do not need to use leave time to get vaccinated if your appointment is during normal work hours, but you should communicate with your supervisor about the timing of your appointment. 

Please remember there are multiple sites in the community that are offering vaccination. We recommend that you take the first appointment you can locate that meets your specific scheduling needs.
