People in Active Groups 1 and 2 are now eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Starting February 24th, PreK-12 school personnel will be eligible. The supply of vaccine we and counties accross the State are receiving is much less than the demand for it, therefore slots are limited.  
Also, supply has been delayed due to winter storms in parts of the country where the vaccine is produced. 

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.

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!
