Rowan County Public Health is excited to share that starting on Monday, January 11th, we will be entering into the Phase 1b/Mass Vaccination Phase for Group 1. This vaccination phase will include all individuals 75 years of age and older, regardless of health status or living situation, and any remaining Phase 1A eligible individuals.

This will be a drive-thru vaccination clinic, which will be held at the West End Plaza/the old Salisbury Mall (1935 Jake Alexander Blvd. West). No appointments are necessary and the clinic will be held Monday-Friday from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, beginning next week.

For this clinic, citizens will be asked to verify their age, answer a few questions either on paper or on a tablet, and provide insurance cards, if they have them. Please note, that the vaccine is FREE to everyone; however we are filing insurance for administrative costs. Please know, however, that there is no cost to you, regardless of insurance. 

As we transition into each phase, please know that we will be working with our local media to keep the public well-informed of any new updates and when the next phase will begin.  We also highly encourage you to also visit our county website often, for new information.

As we go forward, please know that Rowan County Public Health’s number one priority is to ensure that all Rowan County citizens that want a vaccine can receive it, while also balancing vaccine supply and abiding by the phased approach provided to us by NCDHHS.
