In planning phase in preparation for addition of Adults 65 and Over
BURLINGTON – In light of the current vaccine supply, Alamance County Health Department will continue its current operations of vaccinating adults age 75 and older. Following guidance from NC DHHS, the Health Department will continue in the planning process in preparation for adding individuals age 65 and older to its vaccination rollout. In the coming weeks, as more vaccine becomes available, the Health Department will begin accepting appointments from persons age 65 and older. Until further notice, we will only be accepting appointments for people 75 and older, and those first responders and healthcare workers that have not yet been vaccinated.
Alamance County Health Department will reevaluate this decision on a weekly basis, starting Friday, January 22, and will continue each Friday thereafter as the Health Department’s weekly vaccine allocation is released by NC DHHS.
The COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Line will reopen on January 19 at 08:30am to schedule appointments for January 20 until all appointments are filled. The Health Department fills appointments based on its current vaccine supply. Appointments are only being made for first responders and healthcare workers, and adults 75 and older at this time.
The public will be informed of changes and appointment options through the Health Department website, social media, and the local news media.
