The time many have waited for is now here.
In Guilford County, and across the state, anyone 16 years of age or older is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination – and there are finally enough vaccine doses out there for people to get appointments without too much trouble.
In this new era – where vaccine distribution is moving away from being a supply problem toward being a demand problem thanks to vaccine hesitancy – Guilford County has just announced a mass of new available COVID-19 vaccination appointments that opened up for registration on Friday, April 9, starting at 2 p.m.
Those seeking appointments can go to www.healthyguilford.com.
Anyone who wants to register by phone can do so on Tuesday, April 13, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., by calling 336-641-7944 and pressing Option 2.
Only those who have scheduled an appointment and received a confirmation should visit the vaccine sites. Walk-ins aren’t accepted.
For people who want a walk-in appointment, there are some health care providers and other sites in the county that are now offering that service – but Guilford County isn’t one of them.
Also, the new appointments are for first doses only. If you’re looking for a second dose, you’re not eligible for these particular shots from the county.
Guilford County Clerk to the Board Robin Keller said on April 9 that, these days, the county’s vaccination appointments still fill up. However, filling them may take a few days – which gives people the opportunity to sign up without having to call in repeatedly.
When the county first began giving out vaccines, the phone banks were absolutely overwhelmed and the appointments were snapped up like they were tickets to a Taylor Swift concert.
These new Guilford County vaccination appointments will be available at 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. (Suite 1230), in High Point
- The Greensboro Coliseum at 1921 W. Gate City Blvd. in Greensboro.
