How to Get a COVID-19 Vaccine

Brunswick County Health Services requires appointments for vaccinations at its drive-thru clinic at Coastal Cinemas 10 in Shallotte (5200 Bridgers Road).

Health Services is currently scheduling appointments for first and second doses for everyone aged 12 and up, third additional doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna (mRNA) vaccines for the immunocompromised, and booster vaccines for eligible individuals (see eligibility requirements below).

Anyone who needs to speak with someone or who does not have access to a computer or Internet can call the Public Health Call Line for assistance with appointments.

Brunswick County Health Services can accommodate vaccines for individuals who received their first dose somewhere else. Bring documentation of your first dose in the event we are unable to locate your records in CVMS.

Other Vaccination Opportunities

COVID-19 vaccines may be available at the following locations, as supplies are available. Make sure you check with these locations directly for questions about their vaccination process and/or events and to see if you need to schedule an appointment first.

Additional Doses and Boosters

Third Additional Doses

Third additional doses of the Pfizer and Moderna (mRNA) vaccines for moderately to severely immunocompromised people are available to eligible community members. Individuals are required to self-attest to being moderately to severely immunocompromised when they arrive for their third dose appointment. Third additional doses should be administered at least 28 days after the second dose.

Johnson & Johnson Booster Vaccine Eligibility

For individuals who received a J&J vaccine, a booster shot is also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

Note: Individuals are now able to receive any brand of COVID-19 vaccine for their booster shot. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others may prefer to get a different booster. Individuals can call the Public Health Call Line during regular hours of operation for any questions they may have about booster vaccines.
