Defeating the Pandemic
NC State Student Health Services has been approved as a provider of COVID-19 vaccinations for the faculty, staff and students of NC State. We have begun procuring the equipment needed to store and administer vaccines, but we have not yet received any supplies of vaccines; nor do we know when we will receive vaccines or how much we will receive. Once we receive our vaccine supply, the university will provide vaccinations in accordance with guidelines issued by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS).
NC State continues to work closely with state and local health officials on finalizing our plans to administer COVID-19 vaccinations on campus. As more information about on-campus vaccine distribution becomes available, we will share it with the community and update this page accordingly.
The NCDHHS is overseeing vaccine rollout across the state. The state is distributing vaccines in a staged process to five successive groups of recipients. Each group is defined according to age, occupation, health status and other factors. The online tool Find My Vaccine Group walks users through a series of questions to determine which vaccine group they are in. Users of the tool can also sign up to be notified when their group is active.
North Carolina is currently vaccinating health care workers, long-term care staff and residents, and people age 65 and older (groups 1 and 2).
Although NC State is not yet administering the COVID-19 vaccine, other providers across the state are doing so as it is available. If you are eligible to receive a vaccine because you are a member of an active vaccine group, please visit the NCDHHS Find a Vaccine Location tool to get the latest information on vaccination availability. You should contact vaccine providers directly to confirm availability and schedule appointments. Vaccine supplies remain low, so people who are eligible to be vaccinated may still have to wait for an appointment.
