COVID-19 Vaccination Process for Duke Team Members

Vaccine Types

Duke is administering two different COVID-19 vaccines that have been authorized and recommended for use in the United States: the Pfizer and limited supplies of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for those for whom the mRNA vaccine is contraindicated. The Moderna vaccine is widely available at pharmacies and many other locations you can find through the NC DHHS directory.

Initial vaccination with the Pfizer vaccine requires two doses 21 days apart. The Pfizer booster only requires one dose. The Janssen vaccine (Johnson & Johnson) and booster shot requires one dose.
