Wake County Vaccinations
NOTE: This is for Group 2 eligible individuals ONLY. Group 2 is 65 years and older.
You’re eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine and Wake County Public Health now has supply to give you your shot!
Here’s what you need to do next:
STEP ONE: Register in North Carolina's Vaccine System
We have now registered you in the state's COVID-19 Vaccine Management System or CVMS, but you need to finalize that registration. The NC Department of Health and Human Services should have emailed you a USERNAME from the email [email protected] with the subject: “Thank you for signing up!” Go to the state’s vaccine portal and enter that USERNAME to login, follow the prompts to create a new password, and complete the quick registration. It should only take a few minutes.
STEP TWO: Pick an Appointment Slot Below
Once you’ve completed your registration with the state, pick a convenient, half-hour time slot by clicking one of the locations below. You can also go to the very top of this page and use the tabs to review the schedules. There are now three locations to choose from:
1) Wake County Public Health Center (also called Sunnybrook) at 10 Sunnybrook Road, Raleigh (indoor location)
2) Wake County Commons Building (also called The Commons) at 4011 Carya Drive, Raleigh (indoor location)
3) PNC Arena at 1400 Edwards Mill Road, Raleigh (outdoor drive-thru)
PLEASE NOTE: If you have had another vaccine shot recently (flu, shingles, etc.), please wait at least 14 days from that shot to make your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
We encourage you to sign up for the earliest available appointment to take advantage of the supply while it’s available. If you don’t find a time that works for you, keep checking back as more appointments will be added as vaccine supplies come in. We must stress…vaccine supply is very limited.
This appointment link can NOT be shared. Vaccines are only being given to individuals who have been contacted by the state with the state vaccine portal login information.
Please wear clothes that allow us to access your upper arm for the shot. You will have a brief health screening and temperature check if you choose an indoor location. You must wear a face covering.
You will be receiving the Pfizer vaccine. It is the only vaccine that has been sent to Wake Public Health. Click here to read more about the Pfizer vaccine. We also strongly encourage everyone who gets vaccinated to sign up for Centers for Disease Control’s VSafe vaccine monitoring program. It sends you quick health check-ins, so you can let us know how you’re doing which helps keep vaccines safe – for you and everyone.
The Pfizer vaccine requires two shots, which should be given at least 3 weeks apart. Right after you get your first shot with us, you’ll be able to immediately sign-up for your second-shot appointment with us. Remember, it’s vitally important to get both doses of the vaccine. The first dose primes the immune system while the second dose kicks off a more vigorous immune response and production of antibodies. You want your immune system to produce a robust enough level of antibodies that if you’re exposed to COVID-19, your body can effectively fight it.
Also as a reminder, even after your vaccination, you must continue to wear a mask, wash your hands, practice social distancing and only gather with people from inside your household until more people get vaccinated over time. While the shot will protect you from getting sick from COVID-19, you could still be a silent carrier and pass the virus on to other people if you aren't still practicing the 3Ws.
If you have any questions or would like additional information about vaccines, go to WakeGov.com/vaccine or call our 24-hour, 7-day a week Vaccine Hotline at 919-250-1515.
