We are dedicated to helping control the spread of COVID-19 by keeping you informed about how to protect yourself and others. The best way to prevent infection is to continue to follow COVID-19-safe behaviors like social distancing, handwashing and wearing a mask at all times. When available, the vaccine will add an important preventive measure.
We are following state and federal guidelines on vaccine distribution. View North Carolina’s vaccine phases | Ver las fases de la vacuna de Carolina del Norte. Check back often for more information. New information will be posted here and on our social media channels.
Now Vaccinating Patients 65 and Older; New Vaccine Hotline
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 | 5:21 pm
We are now scheduling COVID-19 vaccination appointments for current Wake Forest Baptist patients age 65 and older.
Beginning Wednesday, January 20 at 8 am, patients age 65 and older may call 336-70-COVID to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments. Watch for more details on online scheduling capabilities coming soon!
- COVID-19 vaccinations are by appointment only. No walk-ins are accepted.
- Please be as flexible as possible about the location of your appointment.
- If appointments are full, we will continue to add appointments and locations as supply allows.
- Based on the vaccine supply we receive from the state of North Carolina, it could take months to provide the two required doses for full vaccination with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to all of our patients. We appreciate your patience.
To increase vaccine opportunities for everyone, we also are excited to partner with health departments across the region and with our colleagues in our new Atrium Health strategic combination. We encourage you to check with your local health department and this website for updates about future vaccination events.
Remember: Until public health officials tell us to act differently – even after vaccination – please continue to practice the 3 W’s – Wear a mask, Wash your hands often, and Wait 6 feet apart.
