COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Updated Sept. 1, 2021: Removed NC summer vaccination incentive program as it has ended.
All North Carolinians age 12 and older are eligible to be vaccinated now.
We strongly encourage our campus community to get vaccinated. Vaccines are proven to keep people out of the hospital and prevent death due to COVID-19. Other benefits for campus members who have uploaded their vaccination card:
- Are not be required to quarantine if they have close contact with a positive individual and do not have symptoms
- Are not required to complete weekly surveillance testing
Full protection from the vaccine occurs about two weeks after receiving your final shot. Even after vaccination, UNCSA will still require faculty, staff and students to follow our Community Health Standards.
