[ARCHIVED] Media Release COVID-19 - January 6, 2021

For Immediate Release


Phone: 980-432-1800

Rowan County Case Information:

Rowan County Public Health will begin vaccinating Phase 1b-Group 1 Today

Rowan County Public Health will offer COVID vaccinations for those individuals that fall into Phase 1b/Group 1 and any remaining Phase 1a eligible individuals TODAY and TOMORROW from 9:30 AM - 3:30 PM at our agency, which is located at 1811 East Innes St, Salisbury. Phase 1b/Group 1 includes all individuals 75 years of age and older, regardless of health status or living situation. 

This will be a drive-thru vaccination clinic and no appointments are necessary. We thank you for your patience and ask that you please be prepared to wait.

For this clinic, citizens will be asked to verify their age, answer a few questions either on paper or on a tablet, and provide insurance cards, if they have them. Please note, that the vaccine is FREE to everyone; however we are filing insurance for administrative costs. Please know, however, that there is no cost to you, regardless of insurance. 

As we go forward, please know that Rowan County Public Health’s number one priority is to ensure 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.
