The Craven County Health Department has filled all available appointment slots and has now closed scheduling. Once we receive our next shipment of vaccine, the online scheduler will open back up. 

Patients of CarolinaEast and CCHC will be contacted directly by their medical provider's office to have their vaccine appointment scheduled. 

If you have questions call 252-636-6693 for assistance.

A COVID-19 vaccine will be available soon to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. The best way to fight COVID-19 is to start first with vaccinations for those most at risk, reaching more people as the vaccine supply increases from January to June. Keep practicing the 3Ws – wear a mask, wait six feet apart, wash your hands – until everyone has a chance to vaccinate.
