COVID-19 Vaccine Plan

A tested, safe and effective vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. To save lives and slow the spread of COVID-19, independent state and federal public health advisory committees recommend first protecting health care workers, people at the highest risk of being hospitalized or dying, and those at high risk of exposure COVID-19.

Gaston County is currently working through Groups 1, 2, and 3. There are not enough vaccines for everyone in these phases to be vaccinated simultaneously, but everyone who wants to be vaccinated will have the chance to do so.

COVID-19 Vaccine Facts

Tested, safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines will help us get back in control of our lives
and back to the people and places we love.

Scientists had a head start. The vaccines were built upon decades of work to develop vaccines for similar viruses.

Tested, safe and effective. More than 100,000 people volunteered in clinical trials for all three vaccines (Pfizer,  Moderna and Johnson & Johnson) to see if they are safe and work to prevent COVID-19 illness. Volunteers included Black/African Americans, Hispanics/Latinx, Asians and others. 

You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine. You may have temporary reactions like a sore arm, headache, fever or feeling tired and achy for a day or two after receiving the vaccine.

Supplies are very limited. Right now, very few vaccine doses are available.

Take your shot at no cost. The COVID-19 vaccine is available for free, whether or not you have insurance.
