Student COVID Vaccination Update


The appointment booking site for UNC students and post-docs to sign up for on-campus vaccines launched Friday morning. All appointments for the first week’s allocation of 2,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines were filled by Friday at 4pm.

Watch for Cancellations

UNC students and post-docs can watch for openings on the booking site in case of canceled appointments. The dates when appointments may open include Wednesday 3/31, Thursday 4/1, Monday 4/5 or Tuesday 4/6.

Future Availability

Campus Health will be notified by the Department of Health and Human Services on Thursdays of each week about vaccine dose allocation for the next week. Once notified of the UNC Chapel Hill allocation – which may vary from week to week – appointments will be opened based on that allocation.

We hope that our allocation for next week will be similar in size to our allocation this week.

Students should remain alert for an email about appointment scheduling which will be sent once the vaccine allocation has been confirmed. Due to the spring holiday weekend, new appointment slots will likely open around midday on Monday 4/5 for appointments beginning Wednesday 4/7.

Alternate Locations

Many off-campus vaccination sites are available. If you are seeking vaccination and do not want to wait to sign up, you can find an alternate vaccination location at https://myspot.nc.gov/
