Other Vaccination Opportunities in Our Area

We are also working in partnership with county health agencies in our service counties to provide vaccines to those eligible as vaccines are made available for our region from the state. Alamance, Guilford and Rockingham county health agencies are working with public and private pre-K to 12 school systems and childcare centers to schedule the education workforce for appointments and Cone Health is providing clinical staff to assist with vaccination clinics for this group.

Learn more about each county's vaccination efforts in the website links below:

Vaccine Safety and Effectiveness

Clinical trials for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine involved 42,000 people and showed that the vaccine is more than 95% effective in preventing COVID-19 with no serious safety concerns. Similar results have been reported for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Side effects reported in the Pfizer clinical trials include a sore arm at the injection site, fatigue, headache, chills and fever. While side effects from the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine are higher than for a typical flu vaccine, they are lower in many ways than side effects from the leading vaccine to prevent shingles. Side effects are signs that a vaccine is working and are related to your immune system being stimulated to produce antibodies against infection. Side effects from vaccination are far less significant than health impacts from COVID-19.

Staying Informed

Pharmacists, infectious disease doctors, critical care nurses and other experts at Cone Health continue to speak publicly through media interviews and direct communication with our patients and communities about the safety, effectiveness and importance of vaccines to eliminate COVID-19.

In addition, reliable information on vaccine safety, effectiveness, side effects and more is available on the following websites:

Staying Safe

We agree with the CDC on what we can do to help our communities get back to normal: Getting “back to normal” is going to take all of our tools. If we use all the tools we have, we stand the best chance of getting our families, communities, schools and workplaces “back to normal” sooner:

  • Get vaccinated as soon as vaccines become available within the phase of the state's vaccination rollout plan for which you meet the eligibility criteria.
  • Wear a mask.
  • Stay 6 feet from others and avoid crowds.
  • Wash hands often.

Masking, social distancing and hand hygiene should be followed by everyone, including those who have been vaccinated.

Thank you for every effort you make to stay safe and to keep others safe. We look forward to being right here with you in every step of our journey to eliminate COVID-19 in our community.
