Are you a health care worker? We’d love to hear from you. Email editor at northcarolinahealthnews.org

Since North Carolina received its first allocation of the vaccine against COVID-19, we have been inundated with queries from readers as to where they can find information on getting vaccinated. Before you scroll down to your county, read the top of this article, as it contains important information. This website is for information purposes only. You cannot sign up for a vaccination through this website, but the information here can help you find your shot. 

As of April, everyone over the age of 16 is eligible to get a vaccine in North Carolina now. Only Pfizer is approved for people who are 16 and 17 years old, as well as all adults. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available for everyone over the age of 18, studies are currently underway to determine safety and how well they work in younger children. While distribution of vaccines is widespread, there’s significant variation in how counties are rolling out their allocations of vaccine.

“Every county is making their own roll out plans, so no two are alike in their approach,” wrote Leah Holdren, a spokesperson for Wake County Government in Raleigh.

NC Health News reached out to all 85 of North Carolina’s county health directors (some of the state’s 100 counties share health departments) and have heard from many health department leaders. We’ve also gleaned information off of county websites, social media pages and press releases to bring you as much information as possible.

According to state health and human services secretary Mandy Cohen, residents don’t have to stay in their home counties to get a shot, so if you can drive to get a vaccine, go for it. You can search below, or you can use the state vaccine finder website: https://myspot.nc.gov/

Vaccine rollout is expected to stretch into the summer but until “community immunity” is achieved, the best thing to do is to continue wearing masks and keeping their distance for a few more months, especially when you’re indoors or in close proximity to others. Just this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their guidance to note that masks are not required to be worn outside, unless you’re in a crowd or in close proximity to someone.

Other ways to find a shot:

You can call the COVID-19 Vaccine Help Center at 1-888-675-4567

You can also check a state  website: Find your spot to take your shot.

Want to know more information about the vaccines? This is a fact sheet created by Moderna, makers of one of the new vaccines.

If you’re having trouble reaching your county, you can try this statewide number: 877 490 6642

You should not receive a COVID-19 vaccine if​:

  • You have received another vaccine in the last 14-days (example: flu shot, shingles, tetanus, etc.)
  • You currently have a positive test for COVID-19. The vaccine must be deferred until you have recovered from the acute illness and the criteria has been met for you to discontinue isolation.
  • You have received passive antibody therapy (monoclonal antibodies or convalescent serum) as treatment for COVID-19 within the past 90 days

Are you or someone you love unable to leave the house? Check this website to find someone to bring the vaccine to YOU!  https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/vaccines/homebound-vaccine-providers

Check this website often, we’ll be keeping in touch with counties and health directors and updating the page weekly.

  1. We are 83 and 85 years old and even our health provider in Greensboro NC, Piedmont Senior Care, doesn’t know where and when though we are in daily contact with them since Monday. We are not on Facebook or have many of the skills needed to explore the Internet. Others like us are surely being left out or having to compete with younger groups. I just came across 1 site that says a 2 upcoming days are cancelled because of inclement weather….So that means we would be standing outdoors? What happened to appointments? We are so confused by having to explore for this info ourselves.

    1. “Those in Phase 1B – adults who are 75 or older, regardless of health status – can make a vaccination appointment by calling 336-641-7944 and selecting Option 2 beginning Friday, January 8 at 8:00 AM. Appointments are required.” Unfortunately they closed at 4:45pm (and I only just saw your question) but you could try Monday at 8am. Good luck!

  2. Thank you, North Carolina Health News. This article serves a huge need for North Carolinians who want to know how to get into the COVID vaccine pipeline. What a great service you’re providing. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

  3. The Guilford County scheduling telephone number, 336-641-7944 does not work. They state the following, Those in Phase 1B – adults who are 75 or older, regardless of health status – can make a vaccination appointment by calling 336-641-7944 08:00AM to 4:45PM and selecting Option 2 beginning Friday, January 8 at 8:00 AM. No answer. Dial either doesn’t go through or get a busy signal……….NCB

  4. I am 72 but I have late stage kidney disease , rheumatoid arthritis , & several other immune conditions. Where can I get the vaccine?? Is there no exceptions for those who have other chronic diseases?? JBiggs

  5. I am a caregiver to my 92-year old mother. Am I eligible to get the vaccine in Phase 1b also?

    Thank You

  6. Is there an update as to when we of the age 70 here in Union County can get the vaccine or at least put our name on the list to get the vaccine.
