Demand for the COVID-19 vaccine in NC and Harnett County vastly exceeds the current supply. The COVID-19 vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies are currently limited. Due to vaccine supply uncertainty, the Harnett County Health Department is working thru its COVID-19 vaccine waiting list. We are scheduling first dose COVID-19 vaccines, by appointment only, for persons 65 years or older and health care workers, school and childcare personnel. We will contact you when we have availability to schedule your vaccine appointment. If you have already called or emailed and provided your contact information, no additional action is needed. As we receive additional vaccine, we will continue to work through the waiting list. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
Scams related to COVID-19, are rapidly increasing as the public health emergency continues. Scammers are targeting older adults, using a variety of schemes tied to the pandemic. As COVID-19 vaccine distribution has begun, older adults, should look to trusted resources for information. Make sure your appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine is at an official site. People should only get a vaccine from an approved medical provider. The COVID-19 vaccine will be provided at no cost.
