ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (WAVY) — Albemarle Regional Health Services (ARHS) has provided a list of clinics for an upcoming COVID-19 vaccine event in the region.

** Important Update: The J&J vaccination clinics scheduled for April 14-16 in Currituck, Hertford, Pasquotank and Perquimans counties have been canceled, per state and federal recommendation to pause the use of the vaccine at this time. More information about that here.

“ARHS will not be offering the Johnson and Johnson vaccine until we learn more information. It is our top priority to ensure the health and safety of our community citizens. We encourage individuals to move ahead with your vaccine plans by utilizing one of the other two vaccines that are available.”

There is currently a waitlist for residents in ARHS’s eight-county region who still need the COVID-19 vaccine.

If you or someone you know still need their COVID-19 vaccine, or if you’ve previously signed up and have not received it, fill out ARHS’ survey HERE.

Those who received their first dose at one of the ARHS clinics, regardless of residence status, can receive their second dose as long as they have their vaccine card. Those who received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine with another provider such as Walgreens or CVS, will need to return to that same facility for their second dose.
