PLEASE READ: Important COVID-19 Information on Vaccines

April 14, 2021

 

Need the first vaccine dose?

Registration opened for all members of the UNH community to receive their first COVID-19 vaccine Monday, April 19, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Whittemore Center. The vaccine is available to any member of the UNH community regardless of permanent residency and including those not in the university’s testing program. Please register soon as amounts are limited. The second dose will be administered Friday, May 14, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please plan to get your second dose that day.

  • If you are scheduled for your first vaccine but have not yet received it and want to move your vaccination location to UNH, please go into the state system (VINI) at least 24 hours in advance and cancel your original appointment before scheduling with UNH.
  • If you can’t get the second vaccine at UNH May 14 go into the state system (VINI) AFTER you have received your first vaccine to choose another date and location.
  • You can also pick up more COVID-19 test kits Monday, April 19, at the Whittemore Center, even if it is not your scheduled pick-up day.
     

Already received the first vaccine dose?

If you have already received your first dose elsewhere, please keep your second appointment as scheduled.

If you received the first vaccine at UNH April 8 or 9 please remember to get your second vaccine on May 6 or 7 (check your vaccination card; you do not need to register) between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The hours of operation have been shortened. If you are scheduled for an appointment after 4:30 p.m. please plan to get the second vaccine (May 6 for Pfizer, May 7 for Moderna) any time between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

  • DON’T FORGET your vaccination card
     
  • If you cannot go at the same time as your first appointment on May 6 or 7, please go any time between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
  • If you can’t get the second vaccine at UNH May 6 or 7 go into the state system (VINI) AFTER you have received your first vaccine to choose another date and location.

Regardless of your vaccination status, you must continue to test as scheduled if you are in the university’s testing program.

While the university does not currently require the COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage every eligible member of our community to be vaccinated. If you have already been vaccinated, thank you! If full approval of the vaccines is granted by the FDA, the University System of New Hampshire, in consultation with its board of trustees and the N.H. Department of Health and Human Services, will make a final decision about whether the vaccine will be required for students.

If you have additional questions please review these vaccine FAQs before reaching out to a campus office or the COVID hotline.
