COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Johnson & Johnson vaccine

UNCSA is monitoring recent developments surrounding the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine and will follow directives of the Centers for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the UNC System Office.

Approximately 350 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine were administered on campus in two clinics held on April 1 and April 8. None of those vaccinated on campus  have reported complications to health services staff. 

No additional clinics utilizing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are scheduled at this time.

All North Carolinians age 16 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. 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: wear a mask, wait at least 6 feet apart, wash hands or use hand sanitizer frequently, wipe down high-touch surfaces, perform a daily self-screening, and report positive tests and exposures.

On-campus vaccination events

UNCSA held on-campus vaccination events on April 1 and April 8. The university has contacted parents of eligible high school students with information on a smaller  vaccination clinic that offers the Pfizer vaccine that will be held later in April. The Pfizer vaccine is the only COVID-19 vaccine that is approved for ages 16 years of age and older.
