Where do I go to receive my vaccine?

Mecklenburg County Public Health and StarMed Healthcare are vaccinating residents by appointment at several locations. Upon making your appointment, review your confirmation for the address and specific instructions for visiting your vaccine clinic. If you need transportation to your appointment, contact the Mecklenburg County Transportation System at 980-314-7600.

What might delay my appointment?

You will need to delay your vaccine if any of the following apply on the day of your appointment:

  • You have any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • You have recently tested positive for COVID-19 and have not been cleared from isolation.
  • You have recently had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and have not completed your quarantine period.
  • You have received another vaccine within the past 14 days.
  • You have received passive antibody treatment for COVID-19 within the last 90 days.

When and where do I receive my second dose?

The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines each requires two shots, with intervals of 21 days for Pfizer-BioNTech and 28 days for Moderna. If you received the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, follow the instructions you received at your first dose appointment. Bring your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card that shows proof of your first vaccine dose to your second dose appointment. Call the COVID-19 hotline at 980-314-9400, Option 3 with any questions about your second dose.

If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you do not need a second dose.
