HAMPSTEAD, N.C. (WECT) - If you’re still trying to schedule a vaccine appointment, beginning next week, you now have another option: Harris Teeter.

Currently, only a few Harris Teeters, and only those with pharmacies, are offering this service in North Carolina; to date, the only one in Southeastern North Carolina giving vaccines is the Surf City Crossing Harris Teeter at 203, Alston Blvd. in Hampstead.

As of Thursday afternoon, appointments are available Monday March 8 for eligible people in Groups 1, 2, and 3, including health care workers, anyone age 65 and up, residents and staff at long-term care facilities, and many front-line essential workers.

Administering vaccines is nothing new to Harris Teeter; our pharmacists do this every day,” said Harris Teeter spokeswoman Danna Robinson. “It’s important for us to be able to do this for the community.”

Limited appointments are available at this early stage; this week, only 100 vaccines were delivered to each store offering the service.

People with a scheduled appointment will need to provide a valid driver’s license or government issued identification card. Even though there is no out-of-pocket cost for the vaccine, patients with health insurance should bring their insurance card to their appointment.

Harris Teeter plans to continue administering the vaccine in a phased approach, based on state guidelines, as allocations are available to Pharmacies. Click here for the most updated information regarding vaccine eligibility and availability at Harris Teeter pharmacies.
