    COVID-19 Update
    Vaccination Clinics Continue, Transportation Assistance Available by Appointment
     
    FAYETTEVILLE – The Cumberland County Department of Public Health is providing COVID-19 vaccinations in accordance with guidance from the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). The department is vaccinating people in Groups 1 and 2, which includes healthcare workers who have in-person patient contact, long-term care staff and residents, and people age 65 and older.

    First and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine and second doses of the Moderna vaccine will be available at drive-thru clinics scheduled on Wednesday, Jan. 27, and Friday, Jan. 29, at the Crown Complex from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last.

    Appointment blocks are scheduled in the morning. Vaccines will be given on a first-come, first-served basis in the afternoon.
    Find a Ride
    The public can now request transportation assistance when making an online appointment for the COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics. Individuals who select the option for assistance with transportation to the vaccination site will be contacted by the Cumberland County Community Transportation Program after their appointment has been scheduled. 

    Same-day transportation appointments cannot be accommodated.

    Visit the County’s vaccine website for information on how to request an appointment block.
    Find Your Group
    A new online tool to help North Carolinians know when they will be eligible to get their vaccine is now available. Find My Vaccine Group walks users through a series of questions to determine which vaccine group they are in. People can then sign up to be notified when their group can get vaccinated.
