Wake County’s goal is to get everyone vaccinated as quickly, safely and equitably as possible. But you may have to wait until the federal government provides North Carolina with enough vaccine.
Getting enough supplies to vaccinate the entire population of Wake County will take months. Find your vaccine group at YourSpotYourShot.nc.gov.
COVID-19 vaccine rollout started in December 2020 and will be available more widely as 2021 progresses. Eventually, everyone who wants a vaccine will be able to get one.
Wake County Public Health is one of many providers in Wake County receiving shipments of the vaccine. Individuals in the current vaccination groups can join our vaccine request list. Click here to make a request or call our Vaccine Hotline at 919-250-1515.
If you're eligible, we'll place you on the request list and then as soon as we receive enough doses, you'll receive an email, call and/or text with instructions on how to schedule your vaccination appointment.
This is not a first come, first served process. We determine the order of appointments based on risk and need.
Wake County Public Health only finds out a few days in advance of a shipment how many doses it will receive each week, which makes planning challenging. The more doses we get from the state, the more shots we can get into the arms. Wake County has a population of more than 1.1 million people.
Wake County Public Health has worked diligently to make the vaccination process as easy and efficient as possible. But, when launching anything new, improvements are needed and the county is about to move to a new request and appointment system in March. The process won't change, but we hope the experience will be more user friendly.
