COVID-19 vaccinations to be offered at community venues, more cash cards expected in soon
UPDATE: We just ran out of cash cards for COVID vaccinations. We've requested more and will announce when they come in. Thank you for your overwhelming response and your patience.
The Forsyth County Department of Public Health will offer COVID vaccinations at the Enterprise Center, United Health Centers and the health department next week. Vaccinations will also be offered before tonight’s race at Bowman Gray Stadium with a free admission ticket for that night’s race for the first 100 adults, 18 and over, that receive their first dose.
Public Health is currently out of cash cards, but is expecting to receive more on Monday and will announce when they come in. One hundred dollars worth of cash cards are available to anyone 18 and older who receives their first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, and $25 cash cards are available to non-commercial drivers who take someone to receive their first dose. The cards are for first doses only, and each patient’s COVID vaccination history will be checked before the shot is administered or the cash card is given. Cards will be available while supplies last.

- August 7, 5 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Bowman Gray Stadium Racing, 1250 S. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive
