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.

Husband and wife team and UNC clinicians Dr. Matt Ewend and Dr. Lisa Carey received their COVID-19 vaccinations on a ‘date night’ in late December 2020.

“This feels huge. Getting vaccinated and taking care of cancer patients just for their cancer and not having to worry about all this other stuff,” said Dr. Carey, Deputy Director of Clinical Sciences. “I took my shot to protect my cancer patients.”

“I took my shot to protect my co-workers, our patients and my wife on our first date,” added Dr. Ewend, a practicing neurosurgeon and Chief Clinical Officer of UNC Health.
