GOLDSBORO - The Wayne County Health Department is hosting two weekend Pfizer vaccine clinics for anyone who needs the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Clinics are May 15 at Goldsboro High School from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and May 22 at Spring Creek Middle School from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Recipients are asked to schedule an appointment at www.waynegov.com/vaccine, but walk-ups will be accepted.
The Pfizer vaccine is currently only approved for anyone age 16 or older. WCHD expects approval this week for children ages 12-15.
These weekend clinics are an excellent time for parents and children to get a vaccine together outside of work or school obligations. Anyone interested in the COVID-19 vaccine should note that the vaccine cannot be administered if you have received another vaccine within the past 14 days.
In addition to these clinics, the WCHD has transitioned all weekday first-dose appointments back to the health department building at 301 N. Herman St. in Goldsboro. This change in location allows us to now offer vaccines five days a week.
To schedule a weekday vaccine appointment, visit www.waynegov.com/vaccine or call (919) 731-1000 and press #1.
As of this week, the Wayne County Health Department has administered 30,451 total doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes 15,915 first doses and 14,536 second doses.
