CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - People working at the University of Virginia now have more time to get their COVID-19 shot.

The university moved the deadline from December 8 to January 4. This new deadline aligns with one set by President Joe Biden’s administration.

UVA announced a vaccine mandate for all employees last month. It says anyone who does not comply will face disciplinary action, which could include unpaid leave or termination.
