These Charlotte-area clinics are now offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Walk in COVID-19 vaccination spots are now available at clinics across Mecklenburg County. Included is the main county clinic at Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, which is closing next month. The location is also still accepting appointments.
Novant and Atrium are also accepting walk-ins at COVID-19 vaccination clinics.
The main Mecklenburg County Public Health clinic is located at 2700 East Independence Boulevard and is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays.
The Bojangles Coliseum mass COVID-19 vaccination site will slowly wind down operations in the coming weeks, Mecklenburg Public Health Director Gibbie Harris said Tuesday.
The announcement comes as the supply of vaccine has dramatically expanded.
Residents age 16 and older can still make an appointment at StarMed.Care or by calling the Mecklenburg County Public Health COVID-19 Hotline at 980-314-9400 (Option 3 for English and Option 8 for Spanish). If no appointments are available, those eligible may join the waitlist at MeckNC.gov/COVID-19.
MCPH will be administering the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines due to the recommended pause in administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Second dose appointments will be scheduled at the first dose appointments.
StarMed is also offering walk-in appointments this week at the Sheraton Charlotte Airport Hotel, located at 315 Scott Futrell Drive.
“All Novant Health vaccination sites are now open to walk-in appointments, as supply allows,” Novant said.
