News Release from Orange County Health Department 

Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. announced beginning on March 31, people in Group 4 who are essential workers not yet vaccinated, will be eligible for vaccination.  Group 5, which includes anyone ages 16 and up who wants to be vaccinated, will become eligible April 7. 

Since March 17, part of Group 4, adults with high-risk medical conditions and people living in close group settings, have been eligible. The accelerated timeline will allow the state and vaccine providers to continue to get vaccines into arms quickly and continue to reach underserved and historically marginalized populations. 

“It has been encouraging to see that our community members are ready and willing to get vaccinated,” said Orange County Health Director Quintana Stewart. “We welcome this new timeline that will allow all groups to be able to get this safe and effective vaccine.”

The Orange County Health Department (OCHD) is ready for people in remaining groups to sign up to be vaccinated. To register with OCHD complete the Vaccine Interest Form (VIF) at https://redcap.link/OCHDvax or call (919) 913-8088. The phone line is operated daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Spanish and other languages available.

The Orange County Health Department is not the only place to get the vaccine. See a full list of vaccinators at myspot.nc.gov or call 888-892-1162.
