On Monday, November 1, 2021, the Wayne County Health Department will move all COVID-19 vaccinations and testing to 1322 W. Grantham Street in Goldsboro. This location is the former Food Lion in the Little River Square shopping center. The move will allow the Health Department to continue mass vaccinations & testing as long as needed. Walk-ins will be accepted, but appointments are strongly encouraged to ensure that the Health Department has the COVID-19 vaccine you prefer. Residents can make appointments at www.waynegov.com/vaccine.
To receive a booster shot, you must be fully vaccinated for six months and be in one of the groups below:
- 65 years or older
- You live or work in a nursing home or long-term care residential facility
- You have a medical condition that puts you at high risk for severe illness (for example, obesity, asthma, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes)
- You work in a high-risk profession, meaning you come into contact with a lot of people, and you don’t know their vaccination status (for example, health care workers, first responders, teachers, food processing workers, retail and restaurant workers, and public transportation workers)
- You live or work in a place where many people live together (for example, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, migrant farm housing, dormitories or other group living settings in colleges or universities)
