Vidant Health Media Alert

Press Release:

    Vidant Health continues to follow guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. Vidant planned to administer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine this week at various locations but is pausing, per guidance from the federal government. Vidant has enough Pfizer and Moderna allocation available to ensure we can accommodate vaccinations.

    Importantly, Vidant has not seen any serious side effects or complications from any Johnson & Johnson doses given via our vaccination program. The vaccine offers our greatest hope in the fight against COVID-19 and we encourage people to receive their vaccine as soon as possible.

    Vidant encourages community members with questions to call 252-847-8000.
