About COVID Vaccines
Safe, effective vaccines, along with mask-wearing and social distancing, is our best protection against the spread of COVID and can help us return to normal as quickly as possible. We encourage you to learn more about the safety and efficacy of COVID vaccines and make an informed decision about which vaccine is right for you by reading more about the different vaccines available.
In addition to the vaccination efforts sponsored by UNCP, students, faculty and staff also have the option of getting their COVID vaccine at any off-campus provider. To find an alternate convenient vaccine location near you, visit myspot.nc.gov.

A NOTE ON THE J&J VACCINE
Following the FDA, CDC and NC DHHS statements earlier this week regarding the pause on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, UNC Pembroke will no longer be offering this vaccine. According to the CDC and FDA, there is no evidence that similar medical issues exist with Pfizer or Moderna vaccines and there is no recommendation to pause the administration of these.
If you have already had the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and are experiencing any adverse reactions, please contact Student Health Services at 910.521.6219 or the 24-hour nurse triage line after hours at 1.888.267.3675. For medical emergencies, please call 911 or campus police at 910.521.6235. For more information on the J&J vaccine pause and associated reactions, please visit the links below:
