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. 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Governor has announced changes to the vaccine eligibility timeline:  

  • Beginning Wednesday, March 31, individuals living in congregate living settings, including residence halls and houses/apartments with roommates, will be eligible to be vaccinated.
  • Beginning Wednesday, April 7, all those wishing to get vaccinated will be eligible.
  • UPDATE MARCH 31: Guilford county announced today that effective April 1 they will open all groups to vaccine eligibility. This opens eligibility to everyone over the age of 16.

Because of the expanded eligibility for our students and employees, at this time we are unable to take appointments for family members. Should we have remaining availability of appointments as we approach the clinic dates, we will let you know if we can accommodate family members.

What to Expect

  • 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.
