COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

Due to low vaccine volume, Wilkes Health will be moving the clinic on Thursday April 22nd back to the health department. We will offer Moderna from 9-10:30 (18+) and Pfizer from 11-12:30 (16+). We will host our second dose clinic Friday April 23rd at Rivers Edge from 9-10:30. 

Vaccine Clinic Schedule

Currently, we are only scheduling appointments for those who qualify for first and second doses. In order to schedule your appointment, please call 336-990-9950

Wilkes Health will begin to transition clinics away from River's Edge. Starting next week we will be accepting vaccine appointments Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10-4. On Tuesday and Thursday's we will be scheduling appointments from 4-6 pm. 

If you are calling during appointment hours (M-F, 8:30a-4:00p) and receive our recorded message, please stay on the line and allow it to ring until an appointment specialist is available to answer your call.

If you cannot get through to make your appointment when you call, do not panic. We will be working over the next several weeks to schedule appointments for everyone who is eligible and wants to be vaccinated. Please call back in a few hours or on another day when call volume may not be as high. Do not call multiple times in a row, as this will continue to overwhelm the system.

Wilkes Health is currently vaccinating individuals who fall within the Group 1, Group 2, Group 3, Group 4, and Group 5. Definitions for each phase can be found at yourshotyourspot.nc.gov or here

COVID-19 Vaccine Emergency Use Authorization and Fact Sheets

For each COVID-19 vaccine authorized under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that vaccine recipients or their caregivers are provided with certain vaccine-specific EUA information to help make an informed decision about vaccination. This is accomplished by providing a an EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers. The Fact Sheet is similar in purpose and content to vaccine information statements (VISs) for licensed vaccines but differs in that the EUA Fact Sheet is specific to each authorized COVID-19 vaccine, is developed by the manufacturer of the vaccine, and is authorized by the FDA.
