​Homebound COVID-19 Vaccinations Begin in Mecklenburg County

4/1/2021

Mecklenburg County Public Health (MCPH) is working hard to ensure COVID-19 vaccines are accessible to everyone in our community as quickly and equitably as possible. Earlier this week, as part of that effort, MCPH, in coordination with Mecklenburg Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Agency and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management, began vaccinating homebound individuals who completed the homebound vaccination request form on the County's website, www.MeckNC.gov/COVID-19.  

The first eight homebound individuals were vaccinated Tuesday (March 30) as a part of a trial run. MCPH has received over 500 requests for homebound vaccinations and will be vaccinating those individuals in partnership with EMS over the next several weeks. The number of homebound vaccinations will vary day-to-day.

 

About Homebound COVID-19 Vaccinations 

Mecklenburg County residents can complete the homebound vaccination request form on the County's website, www.MeckNC.gov/COVID-19. County residents meeting the eligibility criteria will receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Each request will be reviewed by MCPH and EMS and scheduled based on eligibility criteria, logistical needs, vaccine supply and appointment availability. 

Individuals who are currently homebound due to an ongoing physical or mental disability and are unable to travel to a COVID-19 vaccination clinic can now request to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at their home residence by completing a request form on the County's website, www.MeckNC.gov/COVID-19.  

For questions or assistance with submitting a request form, call the MCPH COVID-19 Hotline at 980-314-9400 (Option 3 for English and Option 8 for Spanish).
