Vaccine appointments
April 1, 2021 3:19 PM

Dear students,

The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) has announced that there are a select number of COVID-19 vaccine appointments available tomorrow and next Wednesday and Thursday, and student employees of the university are eligible. Individuals in 1A and 1B categories, including students age 18 and older with certain health conditions as defined by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) or disabilities are also still eligible. 

See the CUPHD website for more information about eligibility.


  • You are a student employee of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign


  • You are a student in a 1A or 1B category


  • Vaccinations will be done by appointment only.

  • Online appointments:
    • Log in with your NetID and password
    • Click on the appointment icon on the homepage
    • Follow the instructions
  • Email address for questions and assistance:
  • Note: You must be up-to-date on your COVID-19 testing and show a “Building Access Granted” status in the Safer Illinois app or the Boarding Pass on the day of your appointment at this location.

If you are eligible to make an appointment in this round, I hope you will strongly consider doing so. We will send another message when CUPHD has more vaccine appointments available. As a reminder, the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District is leading vaccination distribution for our county. The university shares information from CUPHD when it is relevant to faculty, staff or students. The university does not control the vaccine appointments, timelines or community clinic locations.

The distribution of a vaccine is welcome news, but we must continue to be as diligent as ever in safety precautions, including regular COVID-19 testing, wearing face coverings, social distancing, hand washing and avoiding large gatherings. Mandatory testing requirements are still in place for individuals who are fully vaccinated.

Thank you in advance for your understanding as we work through this next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic and rely on the guidance of our public health leaders to make the best decisions for our community.
