MEDIA RELEASE

BOLIVIA, N.C. – Brunswick County Health Services will hold two additional COVID-19 pop-up vaccine clinics this June to support vaccination efforts countywide. Appointments are not required at these special clinics.

The next pop-up clinic will take place at the Ingram Planetarium in Ocean Isle Beach Thursday, June 17 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. This event is a drive-thru clinic.

An indoor walk-in clinic will also take place at the WWAY Events Center in Leland Wednesday, June 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Details about both pop-up clinics are below.

Health Services will have all three vaccine types—Pfizer, Moderna and J&J—available at each clinic. Currently, all community members aged 12 and older are eligible to receive vaccines, however those aged 12-17 are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine only.

COVID-19 vaccines are free and insurance is not required. Community members are asked to bring their ID and insurance cards to the clinic, if available.

If you come to a pop-up clinic for a second dose vaccination and received your first vaccination outside of North Carolina, you must provide proof of the vaccination. Our team cannot access other states’ vaccination systems to verify your first vaccination.

If an event is scheduled for an indoor location or is moved indoors due to weather, the clinic will follow the state guidelines for a clinical setting and require everyone to wear masks.
