COVID-19 vaccinations will be offered at Halifax Community College Building 700 Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. while supplies last.  

The Halifax County Health Department will continue to vaccinate group 1A and 1B-1 only.

The health department said in a statement it has secured more vaccines through Vidant North and offered thanks to the hospital for “helping meet the needs of the county.”

Group 1A includes:

Healthcare workers caring for and working directly with patients with COVID-19, including staff responsible for cleaning and maintenance in those areas

Healthcare workers administering the vaccine 

Long-term care staff and residents – people in skilled nursing facilities and in adult, family and group homes.

1B-1 group includes anyone 75 years and older, regardless of health status or living situation 

The health department said the soonest it anticipates vaccinating group 1B-2 is next week. “We have had an exceptionally high interest in group 1B-1. We will continue to prioritize group 1A and group 1B-1.”

1B-2 group includes healthcare workers and frontline essential workers 50 years and older.

The CDC defines frontline essential workers as first responders — firefighters and police officers — corrections officers, food and agricultural workers, United States Postal Service workers, manufacturing workers, grocery store workers, public transit workers, and those who work in the education sector — teachers and support staff members — as well as child care workers.
