COVID-19 Cases in Wake County
While Wake County has the 2nd highest vaccination rates in North Carolina, we still need to monitor this virus, especially with flu and cold season upon us. We continue to track COVID-19 and offer free at-home test kits AND vaccination. In Nov. 2022, due to NCDHHS data-reporting changes and the new prevalence of at-home tests (the results of which are not centrally reported), we revised our COVID-19 dashboard. If you have questions on these changes, contact us at the email and phone number below.
