Cone Health Makes It Easier to Get Free COVID-19 Vaccinations
Walk-ups are now accepted at Cone Health vaccination sites.
Cone Health wants to make it easier than ever to get a vaccine. Walk-ins are now accepted at Cone Health COVID-19 vaccination sites and community clinics. Cone Health is using the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.
“This is another obstacle that we can remove to make it easier for people to get their COVID-19 vaccination,” says Debbie Grant, DNP, RN, a chief nursing officer and vice president for Cone Health. “With the new variants of COVID-19 spreading, we want everyone 16 and over to take the opportunity as soon as possible to get their vaccination.”
According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, only 1-in-3 North Carolinians have taken the vaccine. Many health leaders estimate that 70% to 80% of the population need to be vaccinated or have had COVID-19 to achieve herd immunity. The sooner people are vaccinated, the sooner things get back to normal. Answers to questions about vaccines are available at conehealth.com/vaccine.
While walk-ins are encouraged, vaccination appointments are still preferred. They can be made by going to conehealth.com/vaccine. People without internet access or email accounts can call 336-890-1188, Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. for personal assistance.
