Starting on Thursday, January 21st, the general public will begin receiving the COVID-19 vaccine from Scotland Health and the Scotland County Health Department. Both Scotland Health and the Scotland County Health Department are eager to begin providing mass vaccinations to patients who are at least 65 years of age, following guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
At this time vaccines will be given by appointment due to current vaccine supplies and staffing logistics. There are multiple Vaccine Clinics for Scotland Health. The Outpatient Endo Center located at 205 Lauchwood Drive is for the general public over 65. Scotland Health’s primary care centers will be used as clinics for each practices’ established patients to help increase scheduling capacity for the Outpatient Endo Center location. The Scotland County Health Department has designated the Emergency Operations Center as their vaccine clinic location located at 1403 West Boulevard. Phone lines for scheduling will open at 9 am on Tuesday, January 19th and appointments will begin on Thursday, January 21st.
