The bottom line on CV-19 vaccine is if you want a shot you can get a shot, including first and second doses as well as boosters and for children age 5 and older.
As Granville-Vance Public Health Director Lisa Harrison explained in a weekly email she publishes, “You can come in any day of the week to either location of the health department from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. to receive any CV-19 vaccine being offered – first doses, second doses, booster doses, and even pediatric doses are all available. Only Pfizer is authorized for kiddos, but we have all three types available – Pfizer, Moderna, and J & J depending on what you are eligible for and interested in. Come see us.”
Harrison continued that the data are abundantly clear that getting vaccinated is much safer than not getting vaccinated. She cited a report from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and wrote that “unvaccinated individuals are five times (or 564%) more likely to get COVID-19 as vaccinated individuals.”
She said the next page of the NCDHHS report said that “unvaccinated individuals are 25.30 times (or 2,530%) more likely to die of COVID-19 as vaccinated individuals.”
Lastly, she wrote that it’s important to get a flu shot.
