Covid vaccine doses limited for Friday clinic

A Covid vaccine clinic is scheduled for Friday at the Davie Community Park off US 601 South in Mocksville.

The county received 400 of the first doses to administer that day. The drive-through clinic is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., but according to Health Director Suzanne Wright, the parking lot has been filled with 400 cars prior to 7:30 a.m. Vaccines will be administered once the lot is full (It holds 400 vehicles.) and staff is ready. This is for people age 65 and older as well as frontline healthcare workers.

“It took about 45 minutes to move 400 people through the process last Friday,” Wright said.

The health department has administered some 6,000 vaccines to date.

Second dose clinics continue on Wednesdays from 1-4:30 p.m., with those receiving first shots on Jan. 6 to get second doses on Feb. 3, first shots on Jan. 15, second on Feb. 10; first shots on Jan. 22, second on Feb. 17, and first shots on Jan. 29, second on Feb. 24.

Forms are needed for each clinic and can be downloaded at Daviecountync.gov.

Traffic will be heavy around the park on both vaccination days.

Free Covid testing continues daily in front of the EMS building in Mocksville.
