Selma, N.C. — A drive-thru vaccine clinic at North Johnston High School reported short wait times and plenty of COVID-19 vaccines on Wednesday.
No appointment is needed for the event at 5915 U.S. Highway 301 in Kenly, which is open to senior citizens 65 and older, health workers and staff and residents of long-term care facilities. The clinic opened at 8:45 a.m. and will run until 2 p.m. or until it runs out of vaccines.
As of 1:45 p.m. all of the 2,000 doses available had not been given out yet. As a result, a spokesperson for the Johnston County Public Health said the clinic will now stay open until 4 p.m.
The clinic was originally going to close at 2 p.m.
People are asked to enter through the school’s back entrance on Watson Road.
Another drive-thru clinic opened in Fayetteville at 9 a.m. the Crown Complex for people who need their first or second dose of the vaccine. You can make an appointment online or wait until after 3 p.m. to get a vaccine on a first-come, first-served basis.
In Wilson, a second-dose vaccine clinic is open in Wilson at Fike High School at 500 Harrison Drive. The event is for people who already received their first dose at that location.
