Brunswick County offers two additional pop-up vaccination clinics in May and June for community members aged 5 and up

MEDIA RELEASE

BOLIVIA, N.C. – Brunswick County Health Services is offering two additional pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics on Friday, May 20 at Town Creek Park Community Building in Winnabow and Tuesday, June 7 at Indian Trail Meeting Hall in Southport for anyone aged 5 and up. All vaccines are available at these clinics, including second boosters for eligible individuals (see below). Appointments are not required.

Vaccinations will take place inside the Town Creek Park Community Building and the Indian Trail Meeting Hall. The vaccination clinics follow the state guidelines for a clinical setting and require everyone to wear masks.

COVID-19 vaccines are free to everyone regardless of whether they have insurance. Insurance is not required, but you are encouraged to bring your ID and insurance cards, if available.

Pop-up vaccination clinics scheduled for May and June are as follows:

Friday, May 20 / Winnabow Area (*new)

*Clinic staff will accommodate requests to vaccinate individuals from their vehicles for anyone who may have mobility issues or prefers not to enter the building for any reason.

Brunswick County Health Services offers the following vaccines at these clinics:

  • First and second doses for everyone aged 5 and up*
  • Third additional doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna (mRNA) vaccines for the immunocompromised
  • First booster vaccines (eligible for everyone aged 12 and up)*
  • Second booster vaccines (eligible for adults aged 50 and up, people who received Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 for their first shot and first booster, and people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised)

Health Services will have all three vaccine types—Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and J&J—at these clinics. Those aged 5-17 are eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech version of the vaccine only.

*Health Services requires written permission from a parent/legal guardian to administer vaccines to those aged 5-15 and boosters to those aged 12-17. If someone else brings your child to these clinics, complete a consent form to send with them. Forms are available for download at brunswickcountync.gov/vaccines

The CDC now recommends Moderna & Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines as best choice for most people for preventing severe infection from COVID-19. People who prefer to receive the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine will continue to have access to it, given they do not have any contraindications, as will people who cannot receive an mRNA vaccine. The CDC emphasizes that receiving any vaccine, including the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, is better than being unvaccinated.

Appointments for eligible individuals aged 5 and older are still available at Brunswick County Health Services main clinic in Bolivia. Individuals and/or parents can book appointments online or call the Public Health Call Line:

  • Schedule online here
  • Call the Public Health Call Line at 253.2339 (Open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding holidays)
