POP-UP VACCINE SITES

Novant Health has announced the deployment of its mobile health units to priority ZIP codes across all of its markets in an effort to provide easier access to the COVID-19 vaccine and increase vaccination acceptance. Each week, mobile events will be held at high-traffic locations such as grocery stores and residential areas, including public housing communities and homeless shelters, to provide up to 250 doses of vaccine during each event. Appointments are available, but not required.
