Based on CDC guidelines, the initial phase of vaccine rollout will prioritize high-risk health care workers and residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities. 

 

Please note that each phase is subject to modification by the state. We are currently in phase 1A+ of this process, which was recently expanded to include adults 65+. Phase 1B includes essential workers and the state includes educators among this group. We are working to better understand if and how this designation applies to Emory’s community in advance of this group’s eligibility. 

We have not received guidance on specific dates or windows of time for people who fall outside of these phases to receive their COVID-19 vaccination but will continue to closely monitor CDC and DPH guidelines on vaccine distribution and update the Emory community accordingly. The state of Georgia determines how and when eligibility is expanded for future phases. Emory Healthcare will distribute its vaccine allocation to members of the Emory community as quickly as possible based on the state’s tiering guidance and vaccine availability.

COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs


When it is time for your cohort to be vaccinated you will receive a RAVE text message and an invitation to sign up from noreplywebchart@med-web.com. The email will include instructions for you to complete a vaccination consent form before you can schedule your appointment. If you are eligible based on the current phase and have not received an email, please check your junk or clutter folders. A step-by-step guide for the HOME registration process can be found here.
Yes. We will continue to alert eligible members of our community of their status, and we encourage you to get vaccinated through Emory Healthcare or elsewhere based on availability.
Vaccine availability is subject to change based on supply at the state and federal levels. Please note, however, that both vaccines are equally effective and have been through the same rigorous safety protocol.

Yes. Most students will onboard before receiving the first vaccine and definitely before the second. Therefore, screening is still required. 

If you are currently undergoing mandatory COVID-19 testing, via onboarding or weekly screening, you still need to complete those tests even if you are vaccinated. 

CDC and Georgia DPH have already begun administering vaccinations to people who fall into the 1a and 1b phases of the COVID-19 vaccination plan.

  • The university has a multidisciplinary team working on making the vaccine available according to CDC and DPH guidelines.

  • When it is time for your cohort to be vaccinated you will receive a RAVE text message and an invitation to sign up from noreplywebchart@medweb.

Yes, even with a vaccine you still need to watch your distance and wear a mask. There is not enough information currently available for CDC to determine when it will stop recommending that people wear masks and avoid close contact with others to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Experts need to understand more about the protection that vaccines provide before making that decision. Other factors, including how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities, will also affect this decision.
