Updates from HR: Vaccines, Faculty & Staff Clinic, Reynolda House and Zoom workshop

COVID-19 vaccine update: Group 3

Beginning Feb. 24, those who work in child care and PreK-12 are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Other Group 3 essential workers – including those in higher education – are expected to be eligible beginning March 10. Here is what you can do to prepare: Photo of Reynolda Hall as seen from Hearn Plaza with the sun peeking through the trees

  • If you haven’t already, complete the employee survey. If your work circumstances have changed or you have already been vaccinated, you can let us know by submitting the survey again.
  • If you are unsure of what group you are eligible for, use the NCDHHS Find My Vaccine Group tool.

The University has applied to be a vaccine provider and has plans to implement our own vaccination clinic when approved. The estimated timing of this approval is still unknown. In the interim, we are working with Wake Forest Baptist Health (WFBH) to identify opportunities for University faculty, staff and affiliate colleagues to get vaccinated.

Colleagues should take advantage of any opportunity to get vaccinated through their health care provider and may search for a vaccine provider once eligible.

If you have questions related to COVID-19 vaccine distribution and planning, please review these Frequently Asked Questions or submit your question(s) to Human Resources using this form.
