NVU Community:

Some important vaccine updates to be aware of:

  • All Vermonters and out of state students 16 and older who are Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) — and their entire households — will be eligible to register for a COVID-19 vaccine starting Thursday, April 1. Out of state BIPOC students should use their campus address to register.
    • “Starting April 1, If you or anyone in your household identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC), including anyone with Abenaki or other First Nations heritage, all household members who are 16 years or older can also sign up to get a vaccine. People can sign up online, by calling the Health Department, signing up through a participating pharmacy or making an appointment at a BIPOC household focused clinic using the forms or phone numbers below.” - https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/vaccine/getting-covid-19-vaccine#eligiblenow
