Weekly Student Communication (TUG + SPS) | April 7, 2021

WPU Student community, 

We hope all of you had a good long weekend and found safe ways to get rest and enjoy a break from studies. 

On March 31, 2021 Governor Roy Cooper announced an accelerated plan for COVID vaccination eligibility. The goal is to get all those who want to receive the vaccination, the opportunity to register and this also provides a way to reach underserved and historically marginalized populations. Group 5 will be eligible starting today, April 7th. That means that all adults in NC are now eligible.

If you are interested in getting vaccinated, visit to find vaccination locations. 

What this means? Anyone 16 -17 years old is eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and all those 18 or older are eligible to receive/register for any of the COVID vaccinations. 

While more people are getting vaccinated, we still need to wear a mask, practice social distancing and wash our hands. We want to finish the semester strong! #PacersArePrepared.
