Cone Health Shifts Vaccination Focus
Mass vaccination sites to close with vaccinations moving to community sites and doctor’s offices.
Cone Health will close its mass vaccination sites in Alamance, Guilford and Rockingham counties. COVID-19 vaccinations will shift to select doctor’s offices and mobile clinics. This means closing clinics at Burlington Manufacturers’ Outlet Center, Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center and Zion Baptist Church in Reidsville.
“For the next step in vaccinating our community, we believe it is important to make vaccination even more convenient,” says Debbie Grant, a chief nursing officer with Cone Health. “This means increasing our emphasis on vaccinating people in their neighborhoods and at work. We are also making COVID-19 vaccinations available at select Cone Health Medical Group doctor’s offices.”
Here are the planned closings:
- The Zion Baptist Church site in Rockingham County closes Thursday, June 24.
- BMOC vaccination site in Burlington closes July 31.
- Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center vaccination site closes July 31.
First-dose vaccinations will be given through the closing date. Those needing a second dose will be scheduled for one at a mobile event or referred to the local health department or to an area drug store or grocery store pharmacy that provides vaccinations.
Weekly mobile vaccination and testing clinics are planned in each county once the mass vaccination sites close.
People can walk up or make a vaccination appointment for the free vaccine. Appointments can be made by going to conehealth.com/vaccine.
Cone Health has provided nearly 77,000 first doses and more than 77,500 second doses of vaccines at fixed and mobile sites. Cone Health has provided more than 130,000 COVID-19 tests at fixed and mobile sites.
Cone Health testing and vaccination sites will be closed Saturday July3 in honor of the fourth of July holiday.
