Vaccine Clinic Schedule

THE MASS CLINIC ON THURSDAY JANUARY 28TH IS FULL!

Currently, we are only scheduling appointments for those who qualify for second doses

We will be working over the next several weeks to schedule appointments for everyone who is eligible and wants to be vaccinated.

If you are calling during appointment hours (M-F, 8:30a-4:30p) and receive our recorded message, please stay on the line and allow it to ring until an appointment specialist is available to answer your call.

If you cannot get through to make your appointment when you call, do not panic. We will be working over the next several weeks to schedule appointments for everyone who is eligible and wants to be vaccinated. Please call back in a few hours or on another day when call volume may not be as high. Do not call multiple times in a row, as this will continue to overwhelm the system.

We are continuing to expand our phone system and add appointment specialists to help manage the volume of calls we are receiving.

Due to the  'High Demand, Low Supply' status of the COVID-19 vaccine right now, please know that we are only able to distribute the vaccine in the order that is in accordance with the Vaccine Distribution Prioritization Framework given to us by the State of North Carolina. While this is can be frustrating, we are doing everything we can to get the vaccine out those in the current phase. Please be patient with staff and volunteers as we are all fighting this fight together.  

Wilkes Health is currently vaccinating individuals who fall within the Group 1 and Group 2 (those 65 and older). Definitions for each phase can be found at yourshotyourspot.nc.gov or here

COVID-19 Vaccine Emergency Use Authorization and Fact Sheets

For each COVID-19 vaccine authorized under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that vaccine recipients or their caregivers are provided with certain vaccine-specific EUA information to help make an informed decision about vaccination. This is accomplished by providing a an EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers. The Fact Sheet is similar in purpose and content to vaccine information statements (VISs) for licensed vaccines but differs in that the EUA Fact Sheet is specific to each authorized COVID-19 vaccine, is developed by the manufacturer of the vaccine, and is authorized by the FDA.
