BURLINGTON – On March 3, NC DHHS updated their COVID-19 vaccine rollout plan to include all essential workers. At the time, Alamance County Health Department chose to take the remainder of the week to complete vaccinations for pre-K-12 school staff and childcare workers. After reviewing the vaccinations given thus far, as well as our forthcoming vaccine supply and the increase in vaccination providers in the county, Alamance County Health Department has determined that effective March 8 we will transition to vaccinating all essential workers, as defined by NC DHHS.

COVID-19 vaccination appointments can be made through the new online appointment system https://www.vaccinatealamance.com beginning March 8 at 8:30 am. For those without internet access, the COVID-19 vaccine call center will open on March 8 at 08:30 am to begin scheduling appointments. The number to call for an appointment is 336-290-0650.

The Health Department fills appointments based on its current vaccine supply. If you make an appointment and are unable to keep it, or if you choose to receive your vaccination elsewhere, please call 336-290-0655 to cancel the appointment. This will help to alleviate the possibility of vacant appointment times. This number is for cancellations only; do not call this number for appointments.

The public will be informed of any changes and updates through the Health Department website, social media, and the local news media.
