A tested, safe and effective vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. Rowan County continues to follow the phased approach with guidelines provided by the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

Rest assured: you have a spot to take your shot. As phases open up, information will be shared through press releases, on the county website, on verified social media pages, and with local media.
