Important COVID-19 Vaccine Update

 
Important COVID-19 Update!

Everyone 16 and over is now eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine. However, note that currently, the Moderna vaccine, which is what we are currently administering at the Edgecombe Co. Health Dept., is only advised for those 18 and older. 

For an appointment, call our COVID Hotline at (252) 563-4600. We are receiving a high number of calls, so you may get our voicemail. If so, be sure to leave your name, phone number, and date of birth. 

Other providers in the County are also offering the vaccine:
You can search for locations across the State by going to covid19.ncdhhs.gov/findyourspot.

If you already have an appointment scheduled with the Edgecombe Co. Health Dept., and you end up going somewhere else for your vaccination, please contact us at 252-563-4600 to let us know so we can open that spot for someone else.
 
Please continue to wash your hands, wear a mask and wait at least 6 feet apart. Let all stay #EdgecombeStrong!
