MAHEC and UNCA to host COVID-19 vaccine clinics
We are pleased to announce that MAHEC is partnering with UNC Asheville to operate COVID vaccine clinics at the Reuter Center on the campus of UNC Asheville. The indoor site will operate as vaccines are made available by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. Appointments are required to enter the site.
Currently, according to NCDHHS guidelines, individuals 65 and older, all healthcare workers, teachers, and child care staff are eligible to receive the vaccine. Teachers will receive their vaccine from the Buncombe County Health Department and child care staff will receive their vaccine at the MAHEC/UNCA location. Community members in these approved categories can visit: covid.mahec.net to pre-register themselves on the wait list. Once on the waitlist, individuals will be called by a MAHEC staff member to schedule an appointment when vaccines become available. Please do not call MAHEC's main number to schedule an appointment - we will call you as soon as an appointment slot is open.
We are honored to partner with UNCA to provide these lifesaving COVID-19 vaccines to our community!
