Franklin County residents can now register online for first-dose COVID-19 vaccinations, according to Scott S. LaVigne, county health director.
Please visit https://www.franklincountync.us/alerts/corona-virus-covid-19-joint-information-center, where interested residents will find a link to the county’s COVID-19 Vaccine online booking system. Clink on the link, answer a series of questions to confirm your eligibility and proceed to book your first-dose appointment, according to information from LaVigne.
The online booking process was launched at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 15. “In Franklin County, demand for the vaccine is far greater than the amount of first-doses we are currently receiving,” LaVigne stated, but added that as manufacturers are able to produce more vaccine, the health department will be able to open up more appointment slots for residents to get the vaccine.
Any resident who doesn’t use email or have access to a computer to complete the registration process should call the health department’s dedicated COVID-19 Vaccine phone line at 919.729.0654. If asked to leave a message, please speak clearly and provide a phone number so a staff member can return the call.
