All students, faculty, staff and family members who are 12 years of age or older are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination. Duke students, faculty and staff can receive the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost.
Duke will require all students and employees to provide proof of receiving the COVID-19 booster shot by 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 15, 2022, or within 28 days of their eligibility under CDC and state guidelines, whichever date is later.
Second Dose Only
If you need a second dose of the vaccine but did not receive your first dose at Duke, you may now schedule an appointment at the Duke Employee Vaccination Clinic to receive your second dose.
COVID-19 Vaccination Process for Duke Team Members
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.
