This website is a resource for the Elon University community, as well as members of the Alamance County community at large, providing information about when and how to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Elon has been approved by state health officials to be a vaccine distribution site and will notify the campus and greater community when supplies become available for on-campus vaccinations.
Elon has set a goal of having at least 80 percent vaccination level in the campus community by the end of April. All Elon faculty, staff and students are now eligible to receive the vaccine as part of North Carolina’s vaccination Group 3 and Group 4. All adults 16 and older became eligible to be vaccinated beginning on April 7.
SPECIAL NOTE: Following a thorough safety review of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after an April 13 health alert, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration are confident that the vaccine is safe and effective in preventing COVID-19 and recommend its continued use to prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19.
