COVID-19 vaccine clinics happening this week in North Carolina, Albemarle Health prioritizing NC residents

North Carolina

CURRITUCK, N.C. (WAVY) — Albemarle Regional Health Services (ARHS) announced it is holding several first-dose and second-dose COVID-19 vaccine clinics this week.

Health officials had to cancel several first-dose Moderna clinics last week because of inclement weather.

The drive through clinics are provided on a first come, first served basis, and are currently serving the following priority groups:

  • Group 1 – Healthcare workers
  • Group 2 – Individuals 65 and older

ARHS tweeted they will serve people from out-of-state, but only after all North Carolina residents who want a vaccine have gotten theirs. Many Virginia residents have recently gone down to northeast North Carolina to get shots.

“We’ve got our constituents calling us. I’ve had phone calls today. They’re concerned because we are using our county resources, taxpayer dollars for the sheriff’s department, staffing to come out and direct traffic and take information. They’re seeing 200, 300, 400 Virginia tags in line,” said Currituck County Commissioner Michael Payment. “If you’re not a county resident, you may have to wait, you may wait all day and you may or may not get a vaccine.”

Because it’s a federal program, North Carolina can’t turn out-of-state residents away, but they can place them at the back of the line.

Payment says they’ve had people from as far as Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania to get in line for a vaccine in Currituck.

ARHS serves the counties of Pasquotank, Perquimans, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Bertie, Gates and Hertford. Officials are asking that only people who live in the ARHS region and are included in the current priority groups attend one of the following clinics.
