Raleigh, NC (STL.News) Today Governor Roy Cooper announced the establishment of a COVID-19 vaccination center in North Carolina, in partnership with the federal government.
“This federally supported vaccine center will help North Carolina get more shots in arms and assist us in reaching more underserved communities,” said Governor Cooper.
The FEMA-supported COVID-19 Community Vaccination Center will open at Four Seasons Town Centre in Greensboro on March 10 and will remain open for eight weeks. It will operate seven days a week with the capacity to provide up to 3,000 vaccinations per day, with options for drive-thru service in the parking lot and walk-in service in the space formerly occupied by Dillard’s department store.
To reach more marginalized and underserved communities, the main vaccination center at Four Seasons Town Centre will support additional sites and mobile vaccination clinics in communities of need in Guilford and surrounding counties.
The federal government will provide the center’s vaccine supply, which will be in addition to North Carolina’s weekly allotment from the Centers for Disease Control.
“Thousands of North Carolinians will be able to access vaccines as result of this local, state, and federal partnership.
