COVID-19 Vaccine

The Wayne County Health Department has been identified as a provider for the COVID-19 vaccine. We are excited that a safe and effective vaccine has been manufactured, and look forward to providing this free vaccine to anyone who wishes to receive it. 

It is important to note that vaccination is taking place in phases to ensure that individuals who need it most, receive it first. Below you will see the vaccination plan that the State of North Carolina has established for the COVID-19 vaccine. We do not make the decisions on who receives the vaccine first, that is established by the chart below. 

The federal government is responsible for ordering the vaccine and determining how many doses get delivered where. This means that the shipments come directly from the manufacturer to the Health Department. We estimate that the vaccine will be readily available for the general public by this spring.
