Mass Vaccination Clinics Close After this Week

Rowan County Public Health will be hosting their last 2nd Dose Mass Vaccination Clinic on May 12th at the West End Plaza. With this being our last mass clinic, it is important that if you still need to receive your 2nd vaccination that you make sure to make an appointment as soon as possible. You can do this by calling 980-432-1800; Option 1 or use the QR Code that you should have received at your first vaccination appointment, no later than May 11th.

For those individuals that have still not received your COVID Vaccine; but are interested in doing so, please visit the CDC’s vaccine finder. Here you will find a number of local agencies/businesses that are offering COVID vaccines in Rowan County, such as:

  1. Novant Health at the J. F. Hurley YMCA; Walk-ins are accepted M-F 8 am – 5 pm 
  2. Larger chain pharmacies: CVS and Walgreens
  3. Grocery Stores: Walmart, Food Lion (Salisbury and China Grove), Sam’s Club
  4. Local pharmacies: Moose Pharmacy, The Medicine Shoppe, Country Pharmacy, Price Pharmacy, and Cannon Pharmacy
  5. Provider offices: Rowan Diagnostic Clinic, Cleveland Wellness Clinic 

To find out more information about which vaccines are being offered and when they are being offered, please contact the agency/business directly. 

As Rowan County Public Health transitions from mass vaccinations, please know that our number one priority continues to be making sure our community gets vaccinated. As we move forward, we will now focus on targeting more local businesses and areas throughout Rowan County where access may be an issue. In the meantime, as more of our citizens get vaccinated, we ask that you remember to still practice the 3Ws when going out, especially in highly congested areas where social distancing is limited.  Just as a friendly reminder…Vaccines can only save lives when communities get vaccinated. Do your part to help make our community healthy again by getting vaccinated!
