Brunswick County Health Services holds more pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics in early July (no appointments required)

MEDIA RELEASE

BOLIVIA, N.C. – Brunswick County Health Services announced three more COVID-19 pop-up vaccine clinics in early July to support vaccination efforts countywide. Appointments are not required at these special clinics. Individuals can receive either their first or second dose at these clinics.

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.
