Forsyth County held two COVID-19 vaccination events this week, with two more completely booked, appointment-based events set for next week.


The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners recognized the need to increase the opportunity for residents to receive COVID-19 vaccines. County departments worked together to organize the events. 

“Our Emergency Management Director Chris Grimes pulled together resources from the County’s Information Systems & Technologies, Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office, as well our partners at Northside Hospital and Public Health, to make these appointments available,” said County Manager Kevin Tanner. “We also greatly appreciate the two organizations from our faith community who are allowing us to use their facilities.”

Photos from the events are available by clicking here.    

Please note that all appointments for the week of Jan. 24 have been filled and future vaccination events are dependent upon vaccine availability. Sign up to receive County news, including information on COVID-19 vaccinations, at www.forsythco.com.

The County’s vaccine distribution is intended to supplement that of Public Health. Vaccines will continue to be provided by private physicians, pharmacies and Public Health, as available. For more information on participating vaccine sites, click here.
