Employee Vaccine Information

Virginia Tech continues to diligently work with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and New River Health District (NRHD) to facilitate vaccines for university employees. Employees can register now to receive one of 8,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses, which will be administered on:

  • Tuesday, April 6 from 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 7 from 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, April 8 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Vaccines will be administered at the Dedmon Center on the campus of Radford University, 101 University Dr, Radford, VA 24141. 


  • To register for a vaccine you must be an active employee of Virginia Tech. This includes faculty, staff, wage,  seasonal and graduate and undergraduate students who work for the university in some capacity.

How to register:

VIsit this site then follow these instructions:

  • Complete 2-factor authentication.
  • Select the date and time you want for your vaccine and click Submit.
  • Afterward you will receive a confirmation screen and an email confirmation of your appointment.

Employees must make an appointment to receive one of these vaccine doses. 

Please note the following:

  • Vaccines are for active Virginia Tech employees only. Family members of employees are not eligible during these specifically designated Virginia Tech time blocks.
  • Registration for appointments will close at 4 p.m. the day prior to the date of the vaccination clinic.
  • If you need to change your appointment after you have booked one, visit the site above again to select a different day and time, then follow the same steps to confirm the new appointment.
  • If you have previously received a first dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, do not register for one of these appointments. Contact the NRHD call center 540-838-8222 for information on how to schedule your second dose.
  • If an employee works in a location other than the Blacksburg campus, they may still register for this opportunity, provided they are able to travel to the clinic. As a reminder, if a vaccine requires two doses, the employee may need to travel again to receive their second dose.
  • If an employee is unable to register themselves in the system due to limited computer access, contact for help.
