Beaufort County Public Health Department — January 6th Press Release

Press Release:

    January 6, 2021

    Monday January 11th, Beaufort County is moving into Phase 1b, Group 1 of vaccinations. Due to a very limited supply, we feel the best way to ensure the safety of everyone interested in receiving the vaccine is by appointments only. This will help prevent eligible recipients from being exposed to mass gatherings and large crowds, as well as ensure a safe and structured approach to the vaccination process.

    Phase 1b, Group 1 is for anyone who is 75 years of age or older. If you are 75 years and older, you can call (252) 940-6150 to make an appointment OR you can make an appointment by visiting HERE. The vaccine will be given in a drive thru setting. A rotating schedule has been developed between two site locations: Beaufort County Community College and Southside High School. Please do not arrive to either of the vaccine sites unless you have made an appointment. An appointment is needed to receive a vaccine. We will begin taking appointments, Thursday January 7th @ 8am.

    Vaccine is limited, but we are hopeful that supply will continue to increase. Our main goal is to vaccinate all those who are interested in the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please continue to monitor www.bchd.net for updated information regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as the transitions as we move through the various phases of vaccination.
