Notice: UNCW “Drop-In” Vaccine Clinic Open August 27, No Appointment Necessary

Thursday, August 26, 2021

UNCW will host a drop-in COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, Aug. 27 in Warwick Ballroom 1. Vaccines are free, and no appointment is necessary. The clinic is open to students, faculty, staff and community members. 
Why Vaccination Matters 
Vaccinations have been proven to be safe and effective in reducing illness and the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Vaccinations offer the best path to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and return to more typical conditions. As Seahawks, we must support the health and wellness of every member of our community. Further, the university urges all faculty, staff and students to be fully vaccinated, unless there is a legitimate exemption for health, disability or religious reasons. 
About the Vaccine 
UNCW will be administering the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is approved for those 18 years of age or older. This vaccine requires only a single dose, which means recipients are considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after receiving it. Individuals will be asked to wait at Warwick for 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine as a safety precaution. 
We anticipate receiving doses of other COVID-19 vaccines in the coming weeks. In addition, vaccine options are readily available in our community. Please see resources here for more information.  
Face Coverings, Parking 
Face coverings are required inside the clinic location. 
Free visitor parking is available in Lot M. Please see the Visitor Parking webpage for directions and more details.
