Wake County Announces Walk-in Hours for COVID-19 Vaccines

Wake County Public Health is making it easier than ever to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccine clinics continue to open in more corners of the county, registration forms have been simplified and now appointments are no longer required to get a free shot.

All vaccination locations will now allow walk-ins and drive-ins for first doses. While appointments are still encouraged to expedite your experience, they are no longer necessary. The clinics are open to anyone ages 16 or older. Pfizer is the only vaccine currently FDA-approved for 16- and 17-year-olds.

“We are truly excited to offer these new walk-in opportunities at our public health clinics as a way to both increase access and reduce barriers to getting vaccinated,” Wake County Public Health Director Dr. Kim McDonald said. “These sites help us reach more people in the communities where they live, and the walk-in option provides a measure of convenience for people who have challenges with scheduling or who may decide on a whim that this is the day they want to get vaccinated. We want to be able to accommodate that!”

Vaccine appointments usually only take half an hour, including the 15-minute observation period after the shot. Anyone can get an appointment or see the schedule of walk-in clinics by going to WakeGov.com/vaccine or by calling our 24-hour vaccine hotline at 919-250-1515.
