Vaccine Appointments Open for Students

This Monday, UVA students will receive personalized links to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment in Charlottesville.

The vaccines will be administered at the COVID Community Vaccination Center in the Seminole Square Shopping Center, 393 Hillsdale Drive, Charlottesville.

These appointments are only available to students who have not yet received their first dose of the vaccine. Students who have received an initial dose at a different location must return to that location for their second dose.

In March, some students traveled to Danville to receive their first dose of the Moderna vaccine, after word-of-mouth reports that the city had a temporary vaccine surplus. Danville has since halted walk-in vaccinations.

The Charlottesville vaccination site will offer the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Students will not be given an option among the three. 

Students who receive the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine must return to the same location for their second appointment, which will be scheduled on-site after the first dose is administered. Students who receive the “one and done” Johnson & Johnson vaccine need not return.

Scheduling an Appointment

Students must schedule an appointment in advance with the unique link provided to them. No walk-ins will be accepted at the vaccination site.

If students have their own transportation, they may select any available appointment time. Students without transportation – particularly first-years – should select an appointment time occurring on the weekend of Apr 17-18, from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. This ensures UTS shuttles will be available to transport students to and from the vaccination site.

Students who opt to take the UTS shuttle should reach the bus stop (at the East Gate to Scott Stadium on Whitehead Road) 30 minutes before their appointment

All students should bring their UVA ID with them to their vaccination appointment.


Students will receive a vaccine card which they can use for proof of vaccination if required for travel or other purposes. Vaccinated students will be exempt from prevalence testing 14 days after their final dose.

A record of the vaccines administered via the Charlottesville site will also be automatically transmitted into the Healthy Hoos portal. Students who received their vaccinations elsewhere should upload their vaccine records manually to the portal.
