Updated February 26, 2021
Due to high demand and limited vaccine supply, there may not be available Mecklenburg County Public Health COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
As vaccine supply increases, we will add additional appointments for eligible residents in:
Mecklenburg County Public Health is following
North Carolina's Vaccine Distribution Plan and vaccinating residents by appointment. No walk-ins are accepted.
Each vaccine requires two shots. The interval between doses is 21 days for Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and 28 days for Moderna vaccine.
Eligible individuals are encouraged to reach out to their primary care providers (if they have one) to discuss options for receiving the vaccine. Atrium Health and Novant Health are offering vaccines to patients (see below).
Mecklenburg County Public Health will begin offering new COVID-19 vaccine appointments on Friday, February 12 at 8:30 a.m.
First dose appointment slots from February 22 – March 12 will be available for eligible Groups 1 and 2 residents—health care workers currently working in-person, long-term care staff and residents, and anyone 65 years of age or older.
The appointments can be booked online or by phone. Demand for vaccinations is high and supply is limited, so appointments may fill quickly.
Join the waitlist: Residents who are unable to schedule an appointment online or by phone can join our new waitlist beginning Friday, February 12 at 8:30 a.m. Residents on the waitlist will be contacted by Public Health when appointments become available based on vaccine supply and eligibility.
