Rowan County COVID-19 Case Information:

First Dose Vaccine Appointments Available This Morning for Groups 1, 2, and 3

Appointment slots will be available beginning at 10 AM this morning for a clinic being held on Thursday, March 11th at the West End Plaza. This clinic is for anybody in Groups 1, 2, or 3. 

You can make an appointment by visiting our County’s First Dose Clinics webpage or you may call our COVID hotline at 980-432-1800 and push 1, when prompted. Please be aware that we do anticipate an  increased call volume, so wait times may be much longer than normal.  If at all possible, please try to make you appointment  online to help reduce our call volume.  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.
