COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Updated July 7, 2022:  CDC booster tool link added. Updated ages for vaccine and boosters.

Get Vaccinated and Stay Up to Date

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 required to quarantine if they have close contact with a positive individual and do not have symptoms; however, they must test within 5 days and diminish contact until negative test results are returned. 
  • 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.

UNCSA vaccination and booster status

In order to have an accurate representation of vaccination status on campus, we need you to please complete the Voluntary COVID-19 Vaccination Reporting Form if you have received a vaccination or a booster. Proof of vaccination is an uploaded image or other digital version of your CDC vaccination card. Note: Intentionally misrepresenting vaccination status may be a violation of employment.

Vaccine FAQs

All UNCSA faculty, staff and students are eligible to be vaccinated.

Yes. Everyone is still considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a 2-shot series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Up to date means a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s), when eligible.

All federal employees and contractors are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination based on guidance from the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force and President Biden's Executive Order 14042. UNCSA employees are state employees and UNCSA does not have any federal contractors, so this guidance does not affect our university at this time. However, the order does impact many of our fellow UNC and other higher education institutions across North Carolina and the country. 

No. Per UNC System guidance, UNCSA will not require a COVID-19 vaccination at this time. Any student, faculty or staff member can voluntarily report they are vaccinated. Also, at this time, UNCSA is not requiring vaccines for students in our Community Programs who are eligible for the vaccine. 

Yes. According to the CDC, it’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic. 

CDC recommends COVID-19 primary series vaccines for everyone ages 6 months and older, and COVID-19 boosters for everyone ages 5 years and older, if eligible. Refer to the CDC guidelines for COVID-19 vaccine and boosters according to your age, health status and when you were vaccinated.

You can voluntarily report your vaccination and booster status in order to have a representation of the vaccination status on campus.
