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.

Governor Roy Cooper and NCDHHS Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen visited UNC’s large-scale vaccine site on January 20, 2021.

The UNC Friday Center continues to ramp up COVID-19 vaccination efforts, and Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen visited the site on January 20, 2021.

“The number one priority right now is getting this vaccine administered to North Carolinians as quickly and as equitably as possible,” Governor Cooper said. “I’m grateful for the health care providers working tirelessly to get these shots into more people’s arms and helping us get to the other side of this pandemic.”

Currently, healthcare workers with in-person patient contact, long-term care staff and residents—people in skilled nursing facilities, adult care homes and continuing care retirement communities (Group 1), and people 65 years of age and older (Group 2) are able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Teachers and all school personnel who are currently in or returning to in-person roles at daycares, preschools and/or K-12 schools will be eligible for a vaccine as a prioritized group within Phase 3 of the vaccine distribution plan beginning Feb. 24, 2021. UNC Health continues to follow the COVID-19 vaccine distribution guidance released by the CDC and NCDHHS.

If you are currently eligible to receive a vaccine, visit Get Vaccinated.
