How to Schedule an Appointment for a COVID-19 Vaccine

Brunswick County Health Services is now scheduling appointments for all community members in Groups 1–5. Individuals can schedule first dose vaccine appointments at a county clinic (as available) the following ways:

  • Schedule online here (Community members will then need to answer questions and select the Brunswick location to schedule.)
  • Call the Public Health Call Line at 910.253.2339 (Open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding observed holidays)

You will receive your clinic location when you schedule your first dose appointment, whether online or by phone. You will also receive the date and location for your second dose appointment (if receiving the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines) before you leave your first dose appointment.

While supplies are increasing, there is still high demand for vaccines. Community members are asked to remain patient as it may still take several weeks to find an appointment spot.

If appointments are not available when you search or call, you are encouraged to check back. Future appointment dates are added weekly based on current allocation numbers the NCDHHS sends to the three partners. Also, more appointment slots could open each week as cancellations are processed and/or if vaccine allocations from the state exceed expectations.

Although you are no longer required to create a Novant Health MyChart account, individuals are still encouraged to sign up for a Novant Health MyChart account to provide all necessary information, including date of birth to confirm eligibility, prior to their vaccination appointment. Recipients do not need to be affiliated with a specific healthcare system to sign up for MyChart or to receive a vaccination.

Brunswick County’s Public Health Call Line is available for those who do not have internet or computer access. You will be asked to provide your name, phone number, birth date, and an email (if available).

Brunswick County Health Services cannot schedule your appointment for you in person at the public health clinic in Bolivia.

Need to cancel your appointment? If you get your COVID-19 vaccine at another clinic or jurisdiction, call or email the Public Health Call Line as soon as possible to cancel your appointment. Promptly contacting us allows us to better schedule another patient for the spot, depending on available supplies that week.

The call line is experiencing an increasingly high number of calls and emails daily, so wait times to speak with someone or to receive a response may vary..
