Cone Health has begun vaccinating people against COVID-19 in Burlington. The clinic is at the Burlington Manufacturers’ Outlet Center at 2363 Corporation Parkway. Vaccinations are for those 65 and older.
The Cone Health site is different from one contracted for by the county commissioners Monday, located on Eric Lane which is to be run by the county’s health department. The county health department is not yet vaccinating those between 65 to 75, but only those 75 and over, plus front line workers, health director Tony Lo Giudice explained to the commissioners during their meeting on Monday. The county’s center will likely not open until March, Lo Giudice told the commissioners.
The Cone Health COVID-19 vaccination clinic opened Thursday, February 4. Vaccinations will be provided Monday-Sunday from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Appointments are required.
This provides an additional location for people wanting a vaccination through Cone Health. Cone urges those 65 and older to join the Cone Health vaccine wait list by going to conehealth.com/vaccine, texting “VACCINE” to 88453 or by calling (336) 890-1188. People on the wait list will be notified once an appointment is available. Efforts will be made to offer appointments in Burlington or Greensboro according to the person’s address.
In addition to vaccinations at the new site, Cone is moving its COVID testing to the new location, as well.
COVID-19 testing also moved from Alamance Regional Medical Center to the Burlington Manufacturers’ Outlet Center on Thursday, February 4. Testing hours will be Monday-Friday, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Appointments are required. Go to conehealth.com/testing to register or text “COVID” to 88453.
Cone Health says it has vaccinated more than 10,000 people against COVID-19 since the first vaccines began being administered on December 18.
