SOUTHEASTERN N.C. (WECT) - While many people have already had their COVID-19 vaccination, Dr. Mandy Cohen, the secretary for the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, says the state still needs more shots in arms to meets its goal of two-thirds of adults having at least one vaccine shot.

Vaccine clinics have already been established in each county health department and some counties also have additional vaccination sites in pharmacies and some grocery stores; however, in an effort to make the vaccine more readily available to everyone over the age of 16, drive-through and pop-up clinics are becoming more prevalent.

To help spread the word and keep you informed, upcoming community vaccine locations and clinic times are listed below and will be updated regularly:

Many physician practices in North Carolina have vaccine in stock now and can administer it during a regular appointment if required. Some offices can accommodate walk-in visits.

If you are unsure about receiving the vaccine, your physician can give advice on what is best for you.

“For those who have concerns or questions that have kept them from getting vaccinated, please call your doctor who can provide the facts about the vaccine and likely even administer it in their office,” said North Carolina Medical Society President Philip Brown, Jr., MD.

In a new initiative introduced by the White House, COVID response team, you can now text your Zip Code to GetVax (438829) and you will receive a notification of three locations nearby with vaccines in stock.

The Uber app now has a new feature that allows consumers to book vaccination appointments at a Walgreens location and schedule their Uber ride to the appointment in one process. This is a joint effort to ensure transportation is not a barrier to vaccination.

  • COVID-19 vaccine is free everywhere in North Carolina
  • No photo ID or insurance is needed
  • Everyone can be vaccinated regardless of immigration status (getting vaccinated will not affect your immigration status).
