COVID-19 Vaccinations and Boosters

General Information about Campus Vaccines

If you aren’t yet vaccinated or you haven’t received your booster, take action to protect yourselves and our community. The Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer-BionNTech vaccines and boosters will be available for UNCW students, faculty, staff and the community.

The Student Health Center will offer walk-in times for vaccines and boosters:

  • 1- 4:30 p.m., Monday –Thursday and 9-11 am Friday

The CDC has updated guidance for booster shot eligibility. Individuals ages 50 and older may receive a second booster of Pfizer or Moderna at least four months after receiving a booster dose of any approved COVID vaccine. Immunocompromised individuals are also eligible for a second booster dose four months after their first booster; see the guidance for details. 

Monitor your campus inboxes and Best for the Nest for updates. If you are vaccinated or boosted but have not yet submitted your information to Student Health, please send it to

Vaccinations are also available at many locations in the community and across the state. See NCDHHS information for more details.
