The most effective way to keep yourself and others healthy is to get vaccinated. Student Health continues to offer vaccinations on campus that serve both students and employees by providing access to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Following CDC guidance, which expresses a clinical preference for individuals to receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine over the J&J COVID-19 vaccine, NCCU no longer has the J&J vaccine available.
NCCU offers COVID-19 vaccinations specifically for students, staff and faculty members in the clinic located in Student Health by appointment only between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
We will continue to provide vaccines to community members, if accompanied by a member of our NCCU family, as we understand that close friends and family may want to utilize the campus clinic based on availability and reputation within the community. Guests will not be admitted to the secure medical facility without an NCCU escort and an appointment.
Students, staff and faculty can use the internal links below to register themselves and/or their community member guests for an appointment.

Proof of Vaccination
Students must upload proof of vaccination through the link on the myEOL banner or by clicking this link. Instructions for uploading proof of vaccination can be found here. Employees are strongly encouraged to also upload proof of vaccination and booster doses. Any issues with uploading your vaccines should be reported using an ITS Helpdesk ticket.
Acceptable forms of proof of full vaccination are any one of the following:
- A COVID-19 vaccination record card issued on the form from the CDC
- A note or receipt signed by a licensed nurse, physician, pharmacist, physician’s assistant or another representative of the place where the vaccine was administered
- A printout of the vaccination record from North Carolina’s COVID-19 Vaccine Management System (CVMS)
While the definition of fully vaccinated has not changed and does not include the booster shot, fully vaccinated is not the same as “up to date” or “optimally protected”. To be considered up-to-date or optimally protected, a person needs to get a booster shot when and if eligible. Current quarantine guidelines take into consideration whether a person is boosted or not. NCCU students and employees must upload proof of booster shot using the link on the myEOL banner or by clicking this link.
The CDC recommends that everyone ages 16 and older should get a booster shot either 6 months after their initial Pfizer or Moderna series or 2 months after their initial J&J vaccine.
Eligible individuals age 18 and older may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Those 16–17 years of age can get a Pfizer vaccine booster 6 months after completing the primary vaccination series.
Exemption from Vaccination
Exemptions to the vaccine requirement may be granted to students for religious or medical reasons. A vaccination exemption does not exempt you from required surveillance testing. To begin the process of requesting an exemption:
- Submit a request for religious exemptions through Student Health
- Request medical exemptions through Student Accessibility Services or Accommodate on myEOL.
