The Forsyth County Department of Public Health is offering COVID vaccinations for both children ages 5-11 and those ages 12 and up at the health department and community events.
Due to the difference in prepping and administering the Pfizer vaccine for 5-11 year-olds, which is a third of the dose used for ages 12 and up, there will be community vaccination events devoted solely to children, while others will have only vaccine for ages 12 and above. Appointments are available for all ages groups at the Public Health Department. There is at least a 15 minute observation period after all COVID vaccinations for all ages.
Appointments are available for the following community vaccination event only for ages 5-11:
Walk-ups will be accepted at the following community vaccination events only for ages 12 and up:
Appointments are encouraged for COVID-19 vaccinations at the Public Health Department, 799 N. Highland Ave:
Booster shots are available to Individuals who received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine if it’s been 6 months since they received their second shot and they’re 65 years and older, or if they’re age 18+ and live in a long-term care setting, or have underlying medical conditions, or who work or live in a high-risk setting.
Anyone over 18 may receive a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson if it’s been 2 months since their single dose of that vaccine.
Vaccinations are free and no ID or insurance is needed. While supplies last, the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine for ages 18 and up is available as is the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, for ages 12 and up, and Moderna for ages 18 and up.
