“Millions of individuals, including teens, have already been vaccinated and clinical trials have proven the vaccine is safe and effective even against the more contagious Delta variant. Now is the time, please do not wait to vaccinate,” Betts added. Local and regional health officials say it is important to follow guidance from NC DHHS including: “COVID-19 remains a highly contagious virus and we need everyone, including children 12 and up, to increase their layers of protection by getting their vaccine,” said R. Battle Betts, Jr., ARHS Health Director. “As we continue to see more cases of the virus among our youth, it’s more important than ever make sure your children 12 and older get vaccinated. This step not only helps that individual and their family members, but it is also a step to help protect those who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.

Northampton County residents can call 252-534-5841 to schedule an appointment for either a COVID-19 vaccine or test. ARHS is continuing to accept vaccine appointments (ages 12-and-up) for first and second dose Moderna and Pfizer, along with Johnson and Johnson, at each of its local health departments. Those in the R-C area can call the Gates County Health Dept. (252-357-1380), the Bertie County Health Dept. (252-794-5322), or the Hertford County Health Dept. (252-862-4054).
