COVID-19 Vaccine Information 

From Brunswick County Government

Current Group

Group 2 - older adults (anyone 65 years or older, regardless of health status or living situation)

Health Services will continue to vaccinate members of the population who are eligible under Group 1 (Health care workers & Long-Term Care staff and residents)

How to Schedule an Appointment

Community members ages 65 and older and health care workers in the Brunswick County area are now able to schedule their COVID-19 vaccination by visiting NovantHealth.org/BrunswickVaccine.

Although you are no longer required to create a Novant Health MyChart account, individuals are still encouraged to sign up for a Novant Health MyChart account to provide all necessary information, including date of birth to confirm eligibility, prior to their vaccination appointment. Recipients do not need to be affiliated with a specific healthcare system to sign up for MyChart or to receive a vaccination. As a reminder, appointments are available based on the limited supply of vaccine provided by the state health department and will be updated weekly.

Public Health Call Line

Brunswick County’s Public Health Call Line is available for questions and assistance with MyChart for those who do not have internet or computer access. You will be asked to provide your name, phone number, birth date, and an email (if available).

Brunswick County Health Services cannot schedule your appointment for you over the phone. Instead, Health Services will provide your details to Novant Health, whose representatives will call you in the future to help you schedule an appointment over the phone. This call might come from a private or unknown number.

The call line is experiencing an increasingly high number of calls and emails daily, so wait times to speak with someone or to receive a response may vary.

Public Health Call Line: 910.253.2339 (Open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM)

Understanding the Vaccine Distribution Phases

A tested, safe and effective vaccine will be available soon to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. Independent state and federal public health advisory committees have determined that the best way to fight COVID-19 is to start first with vaccinations for those most at risk, reaching more people as the vaccine supply increases from January to June. Keep practicing the 3 Ws - wear a mask, wait six feet apart, wash your hands - until everyone has a chance to vaccinate.
