COVID shots offered at health department, which will close Thu-Sun for Thanksgiving
The Forsyth County Department of Public Health is offering COVID vaccinations next week at the health department and will be closed Thursday through Sunday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Appointments are encouraged for COVID-19 vaccinations at the Public Health Department, 799 N. Highland Ave., where vaccinations are available for both children ages 5-11 and those 12 and up.
Appointments are can be made at Bit.Ly/FCNCCovidVaccine or by calling 336-582-0800 from 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Mon-Fri. COVID vaccination appointments for all ages will be held Monday-Wednesday of next week from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Booster shots are available to anyone over age 18 who received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine if it’s been 6 months since they received their second shot. Anyone over 18 may receive a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson if it’s been 2 months since their single dose of that vaccine. Individuals can choose which COVID-19 vaccine they want as a booster dose, so they can receive a different vaccine than what they received in their primary series.
Vaccinations are free and no ID or insurance is needed. While supplies last, the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine for ages 18 and up is available as well as the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, for ages 12 and up, and Moderna for ages 18 and up.
