Vaccine supplies at UNC Health are very limited. We are aware of the concern this is causing and are working hard to administer as many vaccines as possible. Please note that limited vaccine supply will not affect our ability to provide a second dose if you have already received your first dose. Learn more.

Most patients can receive COVID-19 vaccines safely.

Every day, more North Carolinians are able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines are an important part of getting back to normal, but some people with specific health conditions may have questions on if the vaccines are safe for them.

First, not everyone is eligible for a vaccine yet. Currently, healthcare workers at high risk of exposure to COVID-19, long-term care residents and staff, people 65 years of age and older and teachers, support staff and all school personnel who are currently in or returning to in-person roles at daycares, preschools and/or K-12 schools are able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

As more vaccines become available, other groups will become eligible for vaccination UNC Health is following the vaccine distribution guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), including the order and timing of who can get a vaccine.
