Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Here is the most current information as of February 19, 2021.

Because of severe winter weather throughout the country and its effect on transportation, Pamlico County Health Department did not receive vaccines doses for the week of February 15, 2021.

The local health department had expected to receive 400 1st doses and 200 2nd doses of Moderna vaccine. However, none of this supply was delivered. Other vaccine dispensers providers throughout the State of NC have reported similar issues.

Current supplies have been depleted as of today, Feb. 19. The health department is expecting vaccines next week; however, this depends on state supplies and the return of normal shipping operations.

Currently the health department is not making any appointments until vaccine supplies are delivered. At that time, the health department will resume in contacting individuals to make appointments for their vaccine doses. The health department is expecting supplies to return to normal within the next two weeks.

Scott Lenhart, Director

Pamlico County Health Dept.
