Appointments and walk-ups available for COVID-19 vaccination this week 

The Forsyth County Department of Public Health has opened up COVID-19 vaccination appointments for this week at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Education Building for anyone age 16 or older.

Vaccinations are free and no ID or insurance is needed. Appointments are available online at Bit.Ly/FCNCCovidVaccine or by calling 336-360-5260 from 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Monday-Friday. The mass vaccination site will be open Monday and Tuesday from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m., Thursday 4 p.m.-8 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. Walk-ups are welcome until an hour before closing.

The website will send an email confirmation that will allow users to cancel the appointment. It’s important to either attend the appointment or cancel at least two hours ahead of time so staff can schedule someone else.

The two-dose Pfizer vaccines will be administered at the appointments. Second dose appointments will be scheduled onsite after vaccination.

All vaccination appointments with Forsyth Public Health will take place at the Fairgrounds’ Education Building located at 414 Deacon Blvd. (attendees should enter off Deacon Boulevard).
