Do your part. When your time comes, get the vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccination program for faculty and staff at Howard University launched on 1/15/21, beginning the Phase 1B Tier 1 rollout. Due to the limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines, we have temporarily suspended the administration of COVID-19 vaccinations.

Therefore, the site for registration will reflect that all slots are closed. We have canceled all appointments for the remainder of this week, January 27-29. In addition, all appointments are canceled for next week (February 1-5), as well.  As soon as additional vaccines are made available, we will reopen for new vaccine administrations.

At that time, we will begin by activating appointments firstly for those who already registered and had appointments. In addition, we will prioritize vaccinations by age. We have available vaccine doses for those who will be eligible for second doses, and we will send reminders to those faculty and staff.

The first round of second doses is scheduled for Friday, February 5. Please note: We will only be able to provide second doses on this day.
