Warren County Health Department Begins COVID Vaccinations

The Warren County Health Department is currently administering the COVID-19 vaccine by appointment to individuals in Phase 1a based on the NC Department of Health and Health Services plan for how vaccines will be provided across the state.  Phase 1a aims to protect healthcare workers fighting COVID-19 and long-term care facilities.

 

Phase 1a includes:

  • Healthcare workers caring for and working directly with patients with COVID-19, including staff responsible for cleaning and maintenance in those areas
  • Long-term care staff and residents – people in skilled nursing facilities and in adult, family, and group homes.
  • Healthcare workers administering the vaccine
  • Healthcare workers handling people who have died from COVID-19

 

The Warren County Health Department will begin vaccinating Phase 1b the week of January 19, 2021. In Phase 1b are adults at the highest risk of severe illness and those at highest risk for exposure. It includes three groups. The Health Department will start with the first group, which is seniors.

 

     Phase 1b - Group 1

  • Anyone 75 years and older, regardless of health status or living situation 

 

Citizens who are eligible to get the vaccine in Phase 1b – Group 1 may call the Warren County Health Department at (252) 257-1185 to make an appointment. 

 

To help protect each other, our neighbors, families and loved ones, please continue to practice the 3Ws – wear a face covering, wait at least 6 feet apart from others and wash your hands frequently. These actions will help us to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Warren County and save lives.
