COVID Vaccine Information

Many people in Fearrington are not regularly on the computer; if you are reading this, please share the information among your neighbors. Information about receiving the COVID 19 Vaccination will be changing regularly; this is totally predictable given the decentralized method of vaccinating everybody. Each of these links or phone numbers is a current starting place, expect delays in scheduling or long hold times.

Vaccine supply is limited and organizations providing the shots are learning how to administer the program. If you are currently eligible (65+), in most cases, you must schedule an appointment to receive a vaccine. (Some individuals have stumbled into a “drive-by” option; as we move forward there may be fewer of these options… or there may be more, impossible to predict.)

The vaccine is free to all patients (you will not be charged) but if you’re insured please bring your insurance card to your appointment. You do not need to bring a photo ID.
