COVID-19 vaccines were once a rare commodity in Guilford County – and they’re still pretty rare.
However, the situation is getting better by the week, and, on Monday, March 8, Guilford County health officials announced that the county was opening applications for yet another round. Appointment registration for Guilford County’s next slate of coronavirus vaccine customers opens up at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, March 9.
Registration will be open until all the slots are filled. These shots are available for “community members” who fall in Groups 1, 2 and 3 – which includes health care workers, long-term care facility staff and residents, people 65 and up, Pre-K through 12 teachers and other school staff, childcare workers, restaurant staff and law enforcement officers.
Those in Group 4 – those who have a medical condition that puts them at higher risk or who live in qualifying congregate settings – should be able to sign up for vaccinations a little later this month.
This new county vaccination event is different from the Federal Emergency Management Agency vaccination effort at Four Seasons Towne Center. Those slots are available through a separate registration process (at www.gsomassvax.org.)
The Guilford County COVID-19 vaccination appointments that open up this week can be booked online at www.healthyguilford.com or by calling 336-641-7944 and selecting Option 2 – after 8 a.m. on March 9.
Guilford County’s vaccination appointments are for the following locations:
- Mount Zion Baptist Church at 1301 Alamance Church Road in Greensboro.
- High Point University Community Center at Oak Hollow Mall at 921 Eastchester Dr. (in suite 1230) in High Point.
- The Greensboro Coliseum at 1921 W. Gate City Blvd. in Greensboro
Only those who have scheduled an appointment and who receive a confirmation should visit the vaccine sites. The county doesn’t accept walk-ins.
