Rowan County COVID-19 Case Information: https://bit.ly/rowan-covid19-hub
Starting this coming Friday, Rowan County Public Health will begin offering COVID vaccination clinics at local school sites and at the Wallace Center. These clinics are for anyone, but they are especially for our local students and teachers as the beginning of school is less than one month away. At each of these clinics, please note that the Pfizer vaccine will be given, which is safe for anyone twelve years old and older. It is also important to note that the Pfizer vaccine does require two vaccines to be considered fully vaccinated, so we ask that you plan accordingly.
If you and/or your child still needs to get a COVID vaccine and these dates and locations do not work for you, please know that you can also 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:

In closing, Rowan County Public Health is not only offering COVID vaccinations in-house on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings, we are also offering appointments for other required immunizations and well-child check-ups on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings, as well. If you and/or your child need of any of these services, please call 704-216-8837 to make an appointment.
