Notice: Visit NC DHHS Website to ‘Find Your Spot to Take Your Shot’

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Over the past few days, members of the campus community have reached out to the Student Health Center via the coronavirus@uncw.edu inbox to ask for information about how to get vaccinated for COVID-19. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ website has a site service locater you can use to find your spot to take your shot.”  

Like many aspects of the coronavirus pandemic, the vaccination process is fluid. Our state’s counties have different procedures to register and are moving at different paces. You should routinely check the resources for your county to be fully informed and ready to sign up for your spot when it’s time for your shot. If you live outside North Carolina, please check with the health department resources in your area.  

The Student Health Center has confirmed that faculty and staff, especially those teaching or working on campus, will be included in Phase 1b, Groups 2 and 3 (based on age) as part of the education sector. Most students will be included later in Phase 3 of the plan, although individuals with underlying health conditions or other factors may qualify for earlier phases. More details about the phases can be found here.  

Please continue to follow applicable health and safety guidelines on campus and in our community. Remember to wear a face covering, wait six feet apart and wash your hands frequently.
