COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Posted on 01/12/2021
The Henderson County Department of Public Health has announced that vaccine providers can begin Phase 1b, Group 1 distribution this week, with registration open to all individuals 65 and older.
Vaccine Clinic Options
Health Department clinic held at East Henderson High: Call 828-585-4700 as supply is available. All available vaccine appointments have been booked for supply on hand. Scheduling will not resume until next week once more doses are received. Please check the Health Department’s website at www.hendersoncountync.gov/health for updates.
Pardee UNC Health Care COVID clinic held at Blue Ridge Community College: Call 828-694-8222/ 694-VACC or go online to www.yourshot.org.
Additional community healthcare partners will announce options for individuals to schedule appointments as supplies become available.
The revised group of all individuals 65 and older is estimated to be more than 30,000 people in Henderson County, roughly a quarter of the population, at a time when vaccine supply remains very limited.
“We ask for the public’s patience since greater numbers of individuals will be pursuing a very limited amount of vaccine,” Health Director Steve Smith said. “We are all committed to providing vaccinations as quickly as possible based on vaccine supply.”
