COVID-19 Vaccine
Your best protection from COVID-19 will be a combination of getting a COVID-19 vaccine, wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds, and washing your hands often. No one tool alone is going to stop the pandemic. None of the COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States uses the live virus that causes COVID-19. You may have symptoms like a fever after you get a vaccine. This is normal and a sign that your immune system is learning how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19.

Starting January 12th, 2021, we will move into Phase 1b of the Vaccine Prioritization Recommendation provided by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Phase 1b will not be open to everyone at first. Vaccinations will be given to individuals 75 years and older at this time. 

The vaccine site will be established at the Governmental Center (look for the big white tent), please enter at the Health and Human Services entrance. YOU MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENTThis is a drive-thru event. Patients will be observed for 15 minutes for signs of reaction after the injection is given. Include consent information. The schedule will be as follows:
Tuesday January 12, 2021: Governmental Center (10am-2pm) Drive-thru
411 NC Highway 65
  Wentworth, NC 27320

Thursday January 21, 2021: Governmental Center (10am-2pm) Drive-thru 411 NC Highway 65 411 NC Highway 65 Wentworth, NC 27320 Thursday January 28, 2021: Governmental Center (9am-3pm) CANCELLED 411 NC Highway 65 Wentworth, NC 27320
We understand the frustration from families and loved ones who wish to receive the vaccine as quickly as possible. On, January 12th, we were able to vaccinate 600 of our citizens 75 years and older and on January 21st we were able to vaccinate 400 of our citizens 65 years and older. This is a step in the right direction, and puts us one step closer to getting on the other side of this pandemic. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
