This page was last updated March 31, 2020 at 2:42 p.m.
UNC’s Student Health Center (SHC) continues to administer COVID-19 vaccine doses to eligible campus community members based on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE)’s mandated phases.
The SHC only receives a limited supply and is not guaranteed to receive doses each week. Eligible individuals are encouraged to contact their health-care provider and other organizations that are administering vaccine doses to receive the vaccine as soon as possible.
Governor Jared Polis announced that starting Friday, April 2, all Coloradans over the age of 16 will be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, and all Coloradans over the age of 18 will be eligible to receive the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This means the state will enter Phase 2 (general public) of the state's vaccine distribution plan.
Those who are 16 and older in the state who want a vaccine will be able to receive
their initial dose by mid-to-late May, meaning many people across the state could
be fully immunized by the end of June.
Individuals who who fall under the state's mandated vaccine Phase 1B.4 have been eligible to get vaccinated since March 19. Phase 1B.4 includes higher-education faculty, staff and university-employed students who work in student-facing environments, students (and others) working in food/restaurant services and other frontline areas, people age 16-49 with high-risk conditions as defined by the state as well as people age 50 and older. If you are uncertain about whether or not you are eligible under any of the state's guidelines, please direct questions to your vaccine provider.
All vaccines at UNC will be administered at the Student Health Center in Cassidy Hall (1901 10th Avenue). If you are eligible, the SHC will directly contact you via your UNC email or Bear Mail. Please do not contact the SHC unless you received your email notification to receive a vaccine.
Eligible individuals are encouraged to contact their health-care provider and other organizations that are administering vaccine doses to receive the vaccine as soon as possible.
Following the CDPHE’s mandated phases, the SHC will administer vaccine doses to the following groups first:
- Phase 1A: Frontline health-care workers
- Phase 1B.1: Health-care workers with less direct contact with COVID-19 patients, first responders and COVID-19 response personnel and individuals over the age of 70.
- Phase 1B.2: Individuals aged between 65 to 69, pre-K-12 personnel and members of state judicial and executive branches.
- Phase 1B.3: People age 60 and over, frontline essential workers in grocery and agriculture and people aged between 16 to 59 with two or more high-risk conditions.
- Phase 1B.4: Higher-education faculty, staff and university-employed students who work in student-facing environments, students (and others) working in food/restaurant services and other frontline areas, people age 16-49 with high-risk conditions as defined by the state as well as people age 50 and older.

Email notifications to receive a vaccine at the SHC are first come, first served. Once the SHC has matched campus community members with the number of vaccines that the SHC has received, then registration will be closed. Received email notifications are open only to invited individuals and not to family members or other individuals. The SHC appointment phone line will have a list of notified individuals, and only those on the list will be able to schedule an appointment. If you have questions about this process, please email Cindy Vetter, UNC’s director of Student Business Services/HIPAA Privacy official,at email@example.com.
On the day of your appointment, eat and drink normally, wear your mask, bring your form, wear a short-sleeved shirt and show up on time. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms on the day of your scheduled vaccine, please call the SHC at 970-351-2412.
