Wake County Public Health to Open Fourth Regional Vaccination Clinic Tuesday

Four regional vaccine centers will soon be offering free COVID-19 shots six days a week throughout Wake County. On Tuesday, May 25, the Wake County Eastern Regional Center in Zebulon joins three other locations across the county with morning, evening and weekend appointments or walk-ins available.

"It has never been more convenient to get a vaccine in Wake County than it is right now,” said Matt Calabria, Chairman of the Wake County Board of Commissioners. “You don’t need an ID, insurance or an appointment, and you don’t need to pay anything. All you have to do is show up at one of our facilities. The average time to check in and get your shot is about 10 minutes, not including your observation time. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s convenient, and it is so important.”

The Eastern Regional Center, located at 1002 Dogwood Drive, is conveniently located right off the intersection of U.S. Highways 264/64 and N.C. Highway 96/Arendell Avenue in Zebulon. The clinic will offer Pfizer shots. For its first day of vaccination, hours will be 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for a soft opening. On Wednesday, the clinic will begin the following regular weekly schedule:

“We’re excited to be offering this new service to residents in outlying communities,” said Eastern Regional Center Director Darryl Blevins. “People who live or work in East Raleigh, Knightdale, Wendell and Zebulon already visit our center for records assistance, energy assistance, elections services, Medicaid or other health programs. Now, in addition to having access to those multiple county departments in one convenient location, the public will also be able to get their shot of protection from COVID-19.”

Regional vaccination efforts have already been underway at the Wake County Human Services Center on Departure Drive in northeast Raleigh, the Northern Regional Center in Wake Forest and the Southern Regional Center in Fuquay-Varina.
