NC State community:

On March 2, 2021, Gov. Roy Cooper announced that North Carolina essential personnel will be eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations beginning March 3. This means that faculty, staff, and student workers who engage in face-to-face interaction on campus as required by their roles in education, the workplace, or research can receive vaccinations at any of North Carolina’s vaccine distribution sites. NC State University plans to begin distributing vaccines later this month.

Vaccines are highly encouraged for all eligible members of the NC State community but are not required. Important information about our vaccine distribution plan is below, along with vaccination resources from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS).

Getting Vaccinated Now
We encourage all faculty, staff and students to get vaccinations once you are eligible to do so. You can use NCDHHS online tools to determine your eligibility for vaccination and find vaccine distribution locations across the state. The tool Find My Vaccine Group can help you determine your eligibility group. Users can register to receive notifications when their group is active.

If you are currently eligible to receive a vaccine, you can use the Find a Vaccine Location tool to get the latest information on availability.

Getting Vaccinated at NC State
NC State expects to begin distributing vaccines the week of March 22 at Talley Student Union based on vaccine availability. Vaccinations will be available by appointment, Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All faculty, staff and students who want to be vaccinated at NC State can preregister beginning the week of March 8. More information about how to preregister will be emailed to the community in the next several days.

We plan to provide approximately 300 vaccinations daily, depending on our allocation from NCDHHS. We will provide all vaccinations in accordance with state guidelines. The top priority group for vaccination will comprise faculty, student workers (including GAs, RAs and TAs) and staff over the age of 65, people with medical conditions that are associated with high risk for COVID-19, and employees who are designated in group 1 within college and unit spring Pack Ready Plans (people working on campus with face-to-face interaction as required by their roles in education, the workplace or research). All other essential personnel will then be vaccinated in the next tier.

More Information Coming Soon
In the next several days you will receive an email with more information about how to sign up for appointments at NC State and more details about on-campus vaccine availability. For the most up-to-date information on NC State’s vaccination plan, please visit the Protect the Pack website. If you have any questions about your eligibility or how to get a vaccine on campus or elsewhere, please call 919-515-6850.
