The following is from the Ocracoke Health Center
The Ocracoke Health Center is still vaccinating only those 75 years and older but is starting pre-registration and scheduling for the rest of the groups in Phase 1B.
Phase 1B, Groups 1, 2, and 3 includes individuals 65 years of age (modified by CDC recommendation) and older and frontline essential workers of any age.
The Ocracoke Health Center clarified on Tuesday (Jan. 18) that they are not canceling anyone’s appointments. This is different from what the Hyde County Health Department is doing as noted in a prior story.
The CDC defines frontline essential workers as first-responders, such as firefighters and police officers, corrections officers, food and agricultural workers, U.S. Postal Service workers, manufacturing workers, grocery store workers, public transit workers and those who work in the education sector (teachers and support staff members) as well as childcare workers.
If you fit the description above, please fill out and submit the form below and a call center member will call you back with a vaccine appointment time and date as vaccine is available.
If you respond yes on the form and do not have a date of birth that indicates you are 65 years of age or older or fit into one of the qualifying groups defined above, YOUR FORM SUBMISSION WILL BE DELETED.
