TRANSYLVANIA PUBLIC HEALTH
Transylvania Public Health is offering in-office COVID-19 vaccinations Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 11:15am and 1:00pm to 4:15pm. No appointment is needed. Vaccine type may vary weekly; please call 884-4007 for more information. At this time, vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson are available. Our clinic is located on the 3rd floor of the Community Services Building at 106 E. Morgan St. in downtown Brevard.
Vaccinations are free for everyone, regardless of insurance. Pfizer vaccines are available for everyone ages 12 or older while Moderna and J&J vaccines are available for everyone ages 18 or older. For second doses, please bring the vaccination card given when you received your first dose; if you do not have a card, we can verify your vaccination status using the state database as long as you received your first dose in North Carolina.
We are also able to provide on-site vaccinations by request for groups at worksites, churches, community centers, and neighborhoods. To request a vaccination event, click here or call 884-4007.
COVID-19 vaccines are also available in Transylvania County from Blue Ridge Health Center-Brevard Health Center, Gordon’s Family Pharmacy, Hendersonville Pediatrics, Ingles Pharmacy, Walgreen’s, and Wal-Mart Pharmacy. Specific availability of each vaccine may vary; you can call each vaccine provider for more information about which vaccines they are currently offering. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines are currently authorized for people ages 18 or older. The Pfizer vaccine is currently authorized for ages 12 or older.
People with questions about COVID-19 symptoms, testing, guidance, or vaccines can call 884-4007 during the health department’s normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm).
The CDC has been monitoring reports of myocarditis and continues to recommend COVID-19 vaccination for people ages 12 or older. So far, rates of myocarditis seen among vaccinated people have not been different from expected baseline rates. Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle; this condition can be serious, but it is often mild and resolves on its own. Symptoms include abnormal heart rhythms, shortness of breath, or chest pain.
Please beware of scams! Transylvania Public Health is not maintaining a waiting list for vaccines and will never ask for money to register for a COVID-19 vaccine.
