COVID-19 vaccines are free to everyone regardless of whether they have insurance. Insurance is not required.

Health Services is offering 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 (aged 12 and up) at these clinics.

Health Services will have all three vaccine types—Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and J&J—at these clinics, however those aged 17 or younger are only eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

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.

Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccines (ages 5-11)

The Pfizer Pediatric vaccine for age 5-11 is available by appointment only at Brunswick County Health Services main clinic in Bolivia. Parents can book appointments online or call the Public Health Call Line to schedule an appointment:

  • 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)

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 their appointment, complete a consent form to send with them. Forms are available for download at brunswickcountync.gov/vaccines

The vaccination clinics follow the state guidelines for a clinical setting and require everyone to wear masks.

Insurance is not required for a vaccine, but you are encouraged to bring your ID and insurance cards to the clinic, if available.
