A safe and effective vaccine will help us defend against the COVID-19 virus, and New Hanover County Public Health is actively working to serve our entire community with the guidance and vaccination groups in the North Carolina Department of Health & Human Services (NCDHHS) vaccination plan. The plan is broken into five groups, with targeted populations prioritized to receive the vaccine in each group. Everyone who wants the vaccine will eventually be able to get one for free, but the process will take months based on the supply of the vaccine and the high need. Until the vaccine is more widely available, we strongly encourage you to continue practicing the 3 Ws – Wear a face covering, Wash your hands and Wait six feet apart.
Below are the current entities offering appointments, when they have vaccine on hand, to those in the community who are eligible under the state’s vaccination plan:
Please note: appointments are only available based on the vaccine supply received by the state and are limited at this time.
