Surry County

Surry County Health Department: 336-401-8400 

The Surry County Health and Nutrition Center will be offering the COVID-19 vaccine to the community as it becomes available and according to the prioritization schedule outlined by the NC Department of Health and Human Services. Currently, Surry County Health and Nutrition Center has received a very limited number of doses of the vaccine; therefore, it is difficult to determine when we will progress through the phases of vaccine administration.

It is important to understand that each county is tasked with creating a plan that fits the needs of the population, and that plan may look very different from county to county. In our efforts to streamline a COVID-19 vaccination plan, we are asking that anyone who is interested in receiving the vaccine to please register online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/22CBXKF. Your contact information will be stored securely and will be used to schedule an appointment when the time arrives for you to receive your vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is tested, safe, and effective. Our plan is prioritized so that those who are most at risk will receive the vaccine first.
