Rowan County COVID-19 Case Information:

Make an Appointment This Morning for a First Dose Vaccine

Appointment slots will be available beginning at 10 AM this morning on the County’s First Dose Clinics webpage, for either this coming Thursday, February 11th or Saturday, February 13th at the West End Plaza.  Citizens may also call the COVID hotline at 980-432-1800 and push 1 when prompted; but due to anticipated increased call volume, wait times may be much longer than normal.  Therefore, you should make all attempts to schedule online.  Citizens without access to computers or internet may wish to visit their nearest Rowan Public Library location to utilize the free public Wi-Fi and computers. Please note that emails cannot be accepted  as a way to schedule an appointment, so staff will be unable to help you and will have to redirect you to the webpage.   

Thank you for your continued patience as we work toward our number one priority of ensuring that all Rowan County citizens that want a vaccine can receive it, while also balancing vaccine supply and abiding by the phased approach provided to us by NCDHHS.
