Rowan County COVID-19 Case Information: https://bit.ly/rowan-covid19-hub
This Tuesday and Thursday, Rowan County Public Health will be offering COVID vaccination clinics at West Rowan Elementary School from 12 to 3 pm and at the Wallace Center from 10 am to 2 pm, respectively. These clinics are for anyone, but we hope that our local students and teachers will take advantage of this service and will begin their COVID vaccination process. Please note that the Pfizer vaccine will be given at both of these clinics, 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 this week’s school-targeted clinics do not work for your schedule, please feel free to 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:
To find out more information about which vaccines are being offered and when they are being offered, please contact the agency/business directly. It is important to know that when seeking out a COVID vaccine for your child, any child younger than 12 is not yet currently eligible to receive a vaccine. However, if your child is 12 years old and older, they can receive the following vaccines based on their age:
In closing and with school beginning next week, please note that Rowan County Public Health in addition to hosting community vaccine clinics is also 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 feel free to call 704-216-8837 to make an appointment.
