Registration ยป Click to view available appointments

If you would like to receive a free vaccination, please register for an appointment through Wake Forest Baptist Health. Appointments are limited and only available time slots will be visible on the registration site. Walk-in appointments will not be available; you must register for an appointment in advance. This appointment is for the first dose of the vaccine; more information regarding your second dose appointment will be provided at the time of your vaccination.

If you are unable to register for an appointment, you may also add your name to the waitlist. A WFU representative will contact you via phone if any appointments unexpectedly become available โ€“ please note that this call could come from an unfamiliar number. If you are able to secure a vaccine appointment, you can remove your name from the waitlist by visiting the waitlist form link again and editing your response.

Preparing for Your Appointment

  1. Pre-register in CVMS: Prior to your appointment, you may receive an email from nccvms@dhhs.nc.gov asking you to pre-register in the North Carolina COVID-19 Vaccine Management System (CVMS). Pre-registering in CVMS will help us provide a more streamlined process during your appointment. If you need additional help registering in CVMS, watch this short tutorial video or review the CVMS user guide (registration instructions begin on page 9).
  2. Work Considerations: Staff may be eligible to use Release Time for appointments; you should communicate with your supervisor about your plans. You may want to request Paid Time Off (PTO) following your appointment in case you experience side effects.

Questions: Faculty, staff, and affiliated employees may contact the Faculty and Staff Clinic at (743) 223-4217 if they need help obtaining an appointment, registering in the CVMS system, or have additional COVID-19 vaccine questions.

If you have been able to secure an appointment through a community vaccination clinic, please keep your originally scheduled appointment. North Carolina plans to open up eligibility to all of Group 4 โ€“ which includes all WFU employees and students living in residence halls โ€“ beginning April 7.

Even after receiving the vaccine, everyone should continue to practice safety measures, including wearing a mask and social distancing. While the vaccination is not required by Wake Forest, we encourage you to consider this opportunity.

Sincerely,
Wake Forest University Human Resources
