UNCW Reopens Vaccination Clinic, Expands to Entire Community

The university will reopen its COVID-19 Campus Vaccination Clinic on Tuesday, April 27. In addition to UNCW students, faculty, staff, retirees and UNCW community family members, UNCW is pleased to extend the invitation to anyone in the local community who is 18 and older. 
  
The CDC completed its review of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and released the pause, allowing them to resume their vaccination clinic. They are encouraging members of the university community to be vaccinated before the end of the semester to help protect yourself, family and friends. With the one-dose vaccine, you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you receive it.  
 
Registration Information 
Appointments are now open for this week for those ages 18 and older. To register, please visit  this link.   
 
On Thursday, the clinic will have extended hours over lunch and into the early evening to make it even more convenient for those that may work or have class during the day.  
 
You will need to provide your name, email address, date of birth, employee or student ID number (if applicable) and mobile phone number to register. In the ID section, Seahawk family members should provide the first and last name of their student, faculty, staff or retiree relative. Community members should enter “community member.” 
 
Please be punctual the day of your appointment. After receiving the vaccine, you will need to remain in the Burney Center for 15 minutes.   
 
Free visitor parking is available in Lot M near Burney Center. Please see the Visitor Parking webpage for directions and more details. 
 
About the Vaccine 
This week UNCW will be administering the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is approved for those at least 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. As you make plans for the summer, please consider that the CDC recently revised its travel guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals.

Students who were vaccinated off campus are encouraged to send a copy or photo of the front and back of their vaccine card to the Student Health Center so that it can be added to your immunization history.
