Wayne County Health Department Hosting Two Weekend Vaccine Events

Wayne County Health Department Hosting Two Weekend Vaccine Events

The Wayne County Health Department will be hosting two weekend Pfizer vaccine clinics for anyone needing a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The county asks that recipients schedule an appointment at www.waynegov.com/vaccine, but walk-ups will also be accepted.

The weekend vaccine clinics will be:

  • May 15, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Goldsboro High School, 901 Beech St in Goldsboro
  • May 22, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Spring Creek Middle School, 3579 NC-111 in Seven Springs

The Pfizer vaccine is currently only approved for anyone age 16 or older. We expect further approval this week for children ages 12-15, which would allow these ages to start receiving a vaccine as well. These weekend clinics are an excellent time for parents and children to get a vaccine together outside of work or school obligations. Anyone interested in the COVID-19 vaccine should note that the vaccine cannot be administered if you have received another vaccine within the past 14 days.

In addition to these clinics, the Health Department has transitioned all weekday first dose appointments back to the Health Department building at 301 N. Herman St. in Goldsboro. This change in location will allow the county to now offer vaccines five days a week. To schedule a weekday vaccine appointment, visit www.waynegov.com/vaccine or call (919) 731-1000 and press #1.

As of this week, the Wayne County Health Department has administered 30,451 total doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes 15,915 first doses and 14,536 second doses.
