The vaccine rollout is underway across the U.S., but what does that mean for college students?
Each state has a coordinated set of phases to timely & effectively vaccinate the country’s most at risk folks first. As the phases progress more students will qualify for the vaccine and we will progress towards community immunity.
North Carolina has 5 phases. For most of our students the 5th and final phase will be when you can receive the vaccine.
To see which phase you qualify for in North Carolina complete the find your spot to take your shot questionnaire.
Currently North Carolina is in phase 2, allowing those who qualify for phase 1 & 2 to schedule an appointment to be vaccinated. Even if you do not qualify in the first 2 phases, if you complete the questionnaire, you can set up a email or text notification for when your group becomes active.
This process and timeline varies state to state. If you are currently located outside of NC, visit the CDC Vaccine Information for Specific Groups or your state health department to find out about your state’s vaccine rollout plan.
