TRANSYLVANIA PUBLIC HEALTH
Transylvania Public Health is not expecting to receive doses of vaccine from the state allocation for the week of January 25-29. We are working with community partners to offer additional appointments in Transylvania County later this week. Staff are still working to finalize logistical details and confirm vaccine supplies. Specific dates and times will be announced soon.
These vaccines will be available for people 65 years or older and healthcare workers with direct patient contact. Supplies are limited and vaccines will not be given to people without an appointment. When appointments are available, you can make an appointment by clicking the link below or calling this phone number: 828-884-4007.
You can sign up to be notified of new appointments using the county’s notification system, Transylvania T.E.A.M. Alerts. Sign up to receive emergency alerts and public service announcements by phone call, text, or email. Click here to sign up online for T.E.A.M. alerts. Be sure to select “General Announcements” to receive notifications about COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
We are experiencing a large volume of calls asking about vaccine availability. To help respond to these calls, Transylvania County Library will be modifying their hours and functions to operate the Transylvania County COVID-19 Call Center. The call center will answer questions, provide up-to-date information, and assist with making appointments (when they are available). The Transylvania County COVID-19 Call Center is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., 7 days a week. Call 828-884-4007.
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.

You might not know it, but memories like these are made possible by Transylvania Public Health. We inspect places like public and private pools, restaurants, hotels and even tattoo parlors to help keep them clean and safe for everyone in Transylvania County to use.
We also keep Transylvania County safe by offering immunizations, screening for health concerns, encouraging good nutrition, and more. Good public health is the backbone of a thriving, healthy community. Transylvania Public Health is already doing a lot to keep you healthy. Get to know us – there’s a lot more we can do for you.
LET’S KEEP IT THAT WAY.
PROTECTING OUR COMMUNITY.
Transylvania County is known for its natural beauty, making it a popular tourist destination and more importantly, a place for families to grow and thrive. We’d venture to say that without clean water, a healthy population, and a well-immunized community, this wouldn’t be so.
Transylvania Public Health is committed to keeping our county beautiful and its people healthy. We’re a quiet but steady partner in economic development, an outspoken player in community health and promotion, and a valued member of any health crisis or disaster preparedness team.
