COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

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 to getting vaccinated are:

  • Vaccinated campus members will not be required to participate in surveillance testing (unvaccinated individuals will);
  • Vaccinated campus members will not be required to quarantine if they have close contact with a positive individual and do not have symptoms (unvaccinated individuals will); and
  • Individuals who are vaccinated in North Carolina have chances this summer to win $1 million or $125,000 toward postsecondary education in North Carolina summer vaccination incentives.  

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.
