Cumberland County vaccine update January 15th 2021

Vaccine ages have been expanded. As reported from Cumberland County Dept. of Health:

 

“North Carolina has expanded its coronavirus vaccine protocols by opening eligibility for the COVID-19 shots to individuals ages 65 and older and to all healthcare workers.

The Cumberland County Department of Public Health will begin offering the vaccine to people ages 65 and up and all healthcare workers at its clinics scheduled for Friday, Jan. 15, and Saturday, Jan. 16, at the Crown Complex from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The vaccine will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the clinics on Friday and Saturday.

“We are doing a big push to get vaccine in the arms of as many of our elderly citizens and healthcare workers as possible in the next two weeks. We are going to increase staffing levels at our drive-thru clinic to create shorter lines and decrease wait times,” said Health Director Dr. Jennifer Green.

The Health Department has scheduled clinics on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Crown Complex and will hold another special Saturday clinic on Jan. 23. Individuals should come prepared to wait by bringing food, water and any medications that may be scheduled. Visit the County’s vaccine website for additional instructions.

Morning Appointment Slots Begin Jan. 19

The Health Department launched an appointment request process for morning slots starting Jan. 19. The appointment request form is posted on the County’s COVID-19 Vaccine page at co.cumberland.nc.us/covid19vaccine.”
