CORONAVIRUS

From Staff Reports

If you live in Orange County and are 65 or older, you are now eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here’s how to make sure you get your shot.

  1. Complete the Vaccine Interest Form (VIF) at https://redcap.link/OCHDvax
    Call 919-913-8088 if you don’t have access to a computer or would like help filling out the form. Foreign language interpreters will be available. Very high call volume is anticipated so the Orange County Health Department is asking for everyone to please be patient for a return call if you decide to leave a voicemail.
  2. Register for the vaccine. You will receive an email with a link to an online registration form to enter your data into the COVID-19 Vaccine Management System (CVMS). It will take several minutes to complete. It is only available in English, but county staff are available to help register in other languages besides English by calling 919-913-8088.
  3. Schedule your vaccine appointment. When an individual is eligible to receive a vaccine, you will receive another email from the Orange County Health Department to schedule an appointment.

To reduce the number of phone calls, residents in subsequent phases will be asked to register later. Eventually, the CVMS system will allow residents to register themselves. The complete list of the vaccination plan’s phases may be found on the NCDHHS website.  

Is the Orange County Health Department the Only Place to be Vaccinated?

No. UNC Health is also offering vaccinations. Their website is https://vaccine.unchealthcare.org and their phone number is 984-215-5485. Please do not double book, but rather either go through UNC Health or OCHD.
