Due to increased vaccine supply in their district, which covers Watauga, Ashe and Alleghany counties, AppHealthCare, our local public health department, has opened vaccine eligibility to all adults. If you have not already received your vaccine, we encourage you to get vaccinated at an upcoming clinic.
All App State students, faculty and staff are eligible for COVID-19 vaccines in the AppHealthCare district, including the App State COVID-19 vaccine clinics. The App State clinic is currently administering the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) “one-shot” vaccine, and serves students, faculty, staff and community members. The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine is approved for adults ages 18 and older.
All local clinics use an online scheduling tool. Choose your preferred appointment time and complete the registration form. You will receive a confirmation email once you have successfully completed your registration.
Register for an upcoming AppHealthCare clinic — clinic dates and appointments are available in Watauga, Ashe and Alleghany counties. Call 828-795-1970 if you have questions or need assistance.
If you are under 18, the Pfizer vaccine is approved for those aged 16+. Contact AppHealthCare at 828-795-1970 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest OR visit Boone Drugs’ COVID-19 Vaccine page to see if the Pfizer vaccine is available at any upcoming clinics and to schedule an appointment.
App State’s Community Vaccine Clinics are held at the Holmes Convocation Center and are open to students, faculty, staff and community members.
There is no charge for the vaccine, nor do you need to provide any insurance information.
Clinic schedules are based on vaccine allotments, so dates and times may vary.
Please remember to wear a face covering and short sleeves or clothing with easy access to your upper arm.
