All adults eligible for Covid vaccine in NC

Sixteen or older can receive COVID shot in NC. J&J vaccine still paused

Everyone in North Carolina age 16 and older is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. If you haven’t already received your shot, you can find participating vaccine providers at MySpot.nc.gov to schedule your vaccine appointment.

What you should know:

  • The vaccine is free everywhere in North Carolina.
  • No photo ID or insurance is needed.
  • Depending on where you get your vaccine, you may need to make an appointment.
  • Everyone can be vaccinated, regardless of their immigration status. Getting vaccinated will not affect your immigration status.

Vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are available in North Carolina. Please note that only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized for people 16 and 17 years old.

Out of an abundance of caution, NCDHHS is following the recommendations of the FDA and CDC and has paused the administration of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine until we learn more, as our primary concern is the health and safety of all North Carolinians.

If you have an appointment for Pfizer or Moderna, please go to your appointment as planned. If you have an appointment for Johnson & Johnson, your appointment will be re-scheduled.

Already received your COVID-19 vaccine? Encourage your family and friends to get their shot, and help them schedule an appointment or provide transportation.

Visit YourShotYourSpot.nc.gov (English) or Vacunate.nc.gov (Spanish) for more information about the vaccines, including answers to frequently asked questions. You can also contact the COVID-19 Vaccine Help Center toll-free at 1-888-675-4567.
