Cape Fear Valley Health is now hosting a COVID-19 vaccine clinic for first doses for people in Groups 1-4 at its pharmacy in Hoke County, the system announced this weekend.
The clinic is by appointment only for people to receive their first shot of the vaccine series. The Hoke Pharmacy clinic will offer the Moderna vaccine and is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Patients who receive the Moderna vaccine must be 18 years old or older.
The pharmacy is located at 300 Medical Pavilion Drive, Suite 100, in Hoke County.
The provider is closing its original clinic at its Hoke hospital for first dose appointments, but that clinic will remain open for second doses, the healthcare system said in a press release.
The hospital system has also adjusted its clinic in Fayetteville. Now, the Center Pharmacy clinic located at 101 Robeson Street, Suite 107, in Fayetteville will offer the Pfizer vaccine by appointment for people 16 years old or older. The Center Pharmacy clinic in Fayetteville is open Tuesday-Thursday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. A parent or legal guardian must accompany all patients under 18 years old.
The clinic at Cape Fear Valley Rehabilitation Center auditorium has closed for first-dose appointments, but remains open for second doses.
