Expanded COVID-19 booster eligibility for faculty, staff & students
November 2, 2021 3:57 PM

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District has shared that there is expanded eligibility for COVID-19 boosters for faculty, staff and students.

According to CUPHD, the CDC states eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. The CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots. Please bring your original vaccination card if possible.


Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson Booster

  • You must live or work in Champaign County.
  • You must be fully vaccinated and six months must have passed since your final dose.

At this time, the university does not plan to require booster shots, but they are strongly encouraged. Employees may receive a booster shot during work hours without the use of accrued vacation or sick leave.
