COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Information

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has announced all children and adults (age 12 and up) are eligible to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Younger teens – those between 12 and 15 – can now get the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The recommendation comes following a thorough review of safety and effectiveness data from clinical trials in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Cumberland County Department of Public Health will begin vaccinating younger teens on Friday May 14th.

Everyone Who Wants a Safe and Effective Vaccine

Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for individuals age 12 and up. Eligible individuals under the age of 18 should consult our weekly vaccine schedule to confirm Pfizer is available before scheduling their appointment.

The first dose you receive (Moderna or Pfizer) will depend on our supply on hand. You will receive the same vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) for your second as you did for your first dose. Check the vaccination calendar for locations that offer the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

The vaccines are free to everyone, even if you don’t have health insurance.

Bring an ID card if you have one. However, an ID card is not required. Personal information about your health and identity is carefully managed to protect your privacy. It is not shared with CDC or ICE.

You can receive your second dose at one of our locations even if you did not receive your first dose with us. Click here to schedule an appointment.

 

Parental Consent may be required
North Carolina law gives people under the age of 18 the ability to make certain health decisions, including the choice to get a COVID-19 vaccine, if they show the decisional capacity to do so. Decisional capacity is a person’s ability to understand their health and health care needs and options, and to make decisions about them. As part of normal development most children can make these kinds of decisions like an adult at some point before the age of 18. There is no one age at which this always occurs; it varies from child to child. Clinic staff will assess a person’s ability to show decisional capacity during the screening process on site.

 

COVID vaccines and pregnancy, breastfeeding, and fertility  
Vaccines are a routine part of prenatal care and people who are pregnant, breastfeeding or want to become pregnant can be safely vaccinated against COVID-19. Pregnant people are at increased risk for severe COVID-19 and the vaccines are very effective in preventing COVID-19 illness. People who are pregnant, breastfeeding or want to become pregnant may choose to receive any currently recommended COVID-19 vaccine.

The temporary reactions from COVID-19 vaccines are the same for both pregnant and non-pregnant people. Additional information can be found here. Pregnant people can talk with their doctors before making the choice. You do not need to take a pregnancy test before you get your vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines are not thought to be a risk to lactating people or their infants. It is possible that immunity from the vaccines can be passed to a baby through breastfeeding. There is no need to wait or avoid pregnancy after being vaccinated. The vaccines do not impact your ability to get pregnant.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends vaccination for all eligible people, including those who may want to get pregnant. Women in the clinical trials successfully became pregnant following vaccination and there have been no safety data to suggest that the vaccines impact the ability of a woman to get pregnant. Similarly, the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology recommends that men who desire fertility should be encouraged to get vaccinated when they are eligible.

If you are unable to access the CVMS Recipient Portal and you need a hard copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination Card, we recommend first contacting the provider where you received your vaccination.

Johnson and Johnson Updates
After a brief pause and careful investigation, the CDC and FDA recommend resuming the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. Following this guidance, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has recommended that North Carolina vaccine providers resume the use of Johnson & Johnson vaccines now that their safety has been reaffirmed.

Everyone is required to wear face coverings (regardless of vaccination status) in the following indoor settings

  • Health care settings including hospitals, nursing homes and other non-hospital health care settings as defined by CDC. This includes Cumberland County Department of Public Health
  • Planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation.
  • Correctional facilities and homeless shelters.
  • Settings that primarily serve children (i.e., child care, schools, camps).

 

When You've Been Fully Vaccinated
Have you been fully vaccinated? People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine

If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.

 

Quarantining After You Have Been Vaccinated
People who are vaccinated do not have to quarantine after an exposure to someone with COVID-19 if they meet all of the following criteria:

  • Are fully vaccinated (i.e., at least 2 weeks after getting their second dose in a 2-dose series)
  • Have had no symptoms from when they were exposed to someone with COVID-19

More information can be found from the CDC. Scientists are still learning how long people are protected after vaccination. The CDC guidance states that people do not need to quarantine if exposed within 3 months after vaccination, but this timeframe is likely to change as we learn more.

 

If you are fully vaccinated, you can:

  • Gather with others who are vaccinated or unvaccinated.
  • Be in most indoor and outdoor public spaces without wearing a face covering or staying 6 feet apart.
  • Not get tested and not quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19 if you do not have symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Travel in the United States without needing to get tested before or after travel or self quarantine after travel. International travelers need to pay close attention to the situation at their international destinations before traveling due to the spread of new variants and because the burden of COVID-19 varies globally.

 

If you are not fully vaccinated, you should:

  • Wear a face covering and maintain social distance in all indoor public settings and in outdoor public settings when it is difficult to maintain 6 feet of distance.
  • Avoid indoor settings where people are not wearing face coverings.
  • Participate in routine screening testing when offered.
  • Wear a face covering, maintain social distancing and be outside if possible when gathering with others.
  • Get tested and quarantine if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms.

Delay travel until fully vaccinated. If you do travel, get tested 1-3 days before and 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel. 

More information can be found from the CDC including information about traveling after vaccination.
