Starting Thursday, Health and Human Services will offer updated COVID vaccine

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – New Hanover County Health and Human Services is now booking appointments to receive the updated Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. This new vaccine will be available by appointment only starting Thursday, October 19.  

Everyone ages 6 months and older is eligible to receive the updated COVID vaccine. If you’ve received a previous COVID vaccine, you should wait two months before getting the updated fall vaccine.  

“As the COVID virus continues to change, it’s important to update our protections,” said Health Director Jon Campbell. “Much like the yearly flu vaccine, this new COVID-19 vaccine is tailored to be protective against the new variants we’re seeing impact our community and we encourage everyone to stay up to date to prevent serious illness.” 

To book an appointment, residents should call 910-798-3500 and select option 6 on the menu. Appointments will be available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.  

While there is no out-of-pocket cost for these vaccines, those with insurance are asked to bring their insurance information for registration purposes. The CDC has ended its COVID-19 vaccination card program and vaccine cards will no longer be updated, but you can receive a copy of your vaccination record at your appointment.
