The first subgroup of Group Three — preK-12 teachers, other education staff and child-care personnel — became eligible for their first vaccine dose on Feb. 24. The remaining essential frontline workers in Group Three are projected to become eligible on March 10.

Local and staff health officials caution there is expected to be limited doses for those individuals at first because of limited overall vaccine supply in North Carolina.

All of its current vaccination slots are filled.

People can set up appointments at Bit.Ly/FCNCCovidVaccine or call (336) 360-5260.

The department asked callers to call one time, leave a message and wait for a call back. Staff will make two attempts to contact callers.

Some phone providers may display the call-center number as private. 

All appointments are at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex Building at 414 Deacon Blvd. No walk-ins are accepted.

Eligible individuals can go to www.co.forsyth.nc.us/covidupdate for more information.
