In its effort to provide all with access to safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is partnering with Piedmont Triad Regional Council Area Agency on Aging (PTRC AAA) to provide free COVID-19 vaccinations to people with limited mobility who cannot leave their home. This new initiative expands PTRC AAA’s successful local at-home vaccination program to communities across the state.
Caregivers, providers, or individuals may access the program by calling the At-Home Vaccination Hotline at 866-303-0026 at any time or by visiting www.ptrc.org/covid and filling out the registration form.
Within three business days, a PTRC Vaccination Specialist will connect with the individual to schedule their at-home vaccination.
There is increasing urgency for people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as the highly contagious Delta variant is rapidly spreading in North Carolina. Clinical trials among thousands of people have proven that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective for anyone age 12 and over. All protect against severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19, including the Delta variant. More than 160 million Americans have been safely vaccinated.
As always, we rely on you as a trusted messenger to help spread the word about access to COVID-19 vaccination.
Thank you for all you do,
