TROY, N.C. -- FirstHealth of the Carolinas is registering eligible members of the public for COVID-19 vaccinations in Montgomery County on Thursday, March 4.
Any eligible member of the public - those 65 and older, school employees and child care workers - who would like to be vaccinated next Thursday should call (910) 571-5018 to schedule an appointment. Please be prepared to leave a voicemail message with your name, date of birth, email address and a phone number where you can be reached.
A representative of FirstHealth will call you back to schedule the appointment. The clinic will be held at the James Garner Center on Thursday, March 4 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A limited number of doses are available, and if vaccine supply is exhausted before all calls are returned, calls will be returned when more supply is available. FirstHealth officials request you don’t leave multiple messages and encourage only those who are currently eligible to call the registration line.
“We encourage anyone who is eligible and wants a vaccine to call and get an appointment,” Rebecca W. Carter, MSN, R.N., FACHE, president of FirstHealth Montgomery Memorial Hospital in Troy, said. “We know that these vaccines along with the 3 Ws will help us bring this pandemic to an end.”
COVID-19 vaccination requires two doses. The second dose will be given approximately 28 days after the first dose. FirstHealth will schedule patients for a second vaccine at the time recipients to receive their first shot. In Montgomery County clinics, FirstHealth is currently administering the Moderna vaccine.
Please be prepared to wait at least 15 minutes after vaccination. All vaccinated persons will be monitored for any side-effects by FirstHealth personnel.
