COVID-19 Vaccinations

Effective Wednesday, April 7, all individuals ages 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated in the state of North Carolina. Please note that as of this time, the Pfizer vaccine is approved for ages 16 and older, and the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for ages 18 and older. Unless otherwise stated, Iredell Health System administers the Pfizer vaccine at the clinics open for scheduling through this page.

We will not hold a first dose vaccine clinic this weekend. Second dose clinics will proceed as scheduled.
Second dose appointments are automatically scheduled for 3 weeks after the first dose. If you cannot make the second dose appointment, please do NOT schedule a first dose appointment. Instead, please wait to schedule an appointment until there is a clinic where you will be able to attend both the first and second dose dates.
You should receive two emails when booking your first appointment — one for your first dose, and one for your second dose. Occasionally, a second dose confirmation is not sent. If you do not receive a second dose confirmation email, please go to https://find.simpletix.com/ and search by your email address. If after searching you do not see your second dose ticket, please wait approximately one week from the date of your first appointment, check again, and if the ticket is still not available, please email covidvaccine@iredellhealth.org. Please note that will-call tickets will not have second dose tickets sent until approximately one week after the appointment. We also recommend checking the spam/junk mail folders of your email for your tickets if you do not see them in your inbox.

Vaccination Info: Please read this FDA fact sheet (PDF, will open in a new window) to help you understand the risks and benefits of the Pfizer-Biontech vaccine you will receive for COVID-19 at Iredell Memorial Hospital.

There’s no direct cost to you to get the vaccine:

  • If you have health insurance, the administration fee will be paid by your health insurance with no cost to you.
  • If you do not have health insurance, the fee may be paid for by the Provider Relief Fund, with no cost to you. Regardless, there will be no cost to you.
  • When booking your appointment, please have your health insurance carrier name and health insurance policy number available. If you do not have health insurance, please enter 'self-insured' in the areas asking for your health insurance information.

BEFORE BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT, PLEASE READ THE SECOND DOSE INFORMATION AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE. Please only book an appointment if you are able to attend the second dose appointment on the same day of the week, 3 weeks later.

The state of North Carolina notifies us weekly if our organization will receive a vaccine shipment. If we receive a shipment, we will update this page on Tuesday afternoons/Wednesday mornings with the scheduling information for a public vaccination clinic. The scheduling link will only be posted while appointments are available. If you do not see a scheduling link, there are no appointments currently available. An updated link will be posted again when more appointments become available. *Please note this information is subject to change at any time and scheduling links may be posted on different days depending on vaccine shipments.*

Questions should be sent to covidvaccine@iredellhealth.org. We do not have a waiting list at this time. Please also note that this email address is monitored during regular business hours Monday-Friday ONLY, and replies may take several days due to large email volume.

Iredell Memorial Hospital typically administers the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine. Both doses must be the same vaccine. In other words, if your 1st dose is Pfizer-BioNtech, your 2nd dose cannot be Moderna, or vice versa. At this time we have not received any Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine?

The goal of the NC Department of Health and Human Services is to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible, given the limited supply of vaccines. NC's vaccination groups align with federal priorities.

As of 4/7/2021, all individuals ages 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated in the state of North Carolina.

When will I be eligible to receive the vaccine?

We are following the vaccine schedule set by the state of North Carolina. This schedule is in phases, and some of the phases require specific groups of individuals to be vaccinated before others.

As of 4/7/2021, we are authorized to vaccinate all individuals ages 16 and older.

How will I know when I am eligible to be vaccinated?

Information on this page will be updated regularly. We encourage you to check this page often. Information on vaccination will also be posted on the Iredell Health System Facebook page.

Is there a cost to receive the vaccine?

There’s no direct cost to you to get the vaccine:

  • If you have health insurance, the administration fee will be paid by your health insurance with no cost to you.
  • If you do not have health insurance, the fee may be paid for by the Provider Relief Fund, with no cost to you.
  • When booking your appointment, please have your health insurance carrier name and health insurance policy number available. If you do not have health insurance, please enter 'self-insured' in the areas asking for your health insurance information.

Can you help me understand my vaccine record card?

At your appointment for your first dose, you will be given a vaccine record card from the CDC. This card will show what type of vaccine you received with a corresponding lot number. Upon receiving your card, please put your name and date of birth at the top, and make sure the date you receive your first dose is also listed in the space next to the vaccine name.

When you come for your second dose appointment, you will receive a second card. This card is the same as your first, but will likely have different information written on it. It may be written in the "Other" space. Please copy the information from this second card to your first card, into the second dose line. Make sure you include the date your received your second dose.

Please note that there is no difference in what is in the first or second dose, and these cards are for your records only.

How do I cancel my appointment?

After booking your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email at the email address you provided. In that email, toward the bottom, there is a CANCEL button. Click on CANCEL.

Please note that once an appointment is canceled, it cannot be reinstated. You will need to rebook using the online scheduling links in order to secure another appointment.
