HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 11, 2021 – The High Point University Community Center opened its doors to community members and the Guilford County Division of Public Health as one of three COVID-19 vaccination clinics in the county and the city of High Point’s only clinic.
Today, Phase 1B adults arrived to receive the first of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine. HPU partnered with the county to offer the space as the county began administering the vaccine to Phase 1B adults.
“I think this is great, High Point University is doing a lot for the city,” said Bonnie Durland, a city of High Point resident. “It’s close to where I live, and I knew where to go.”
Vaccinations are available by appointment only to Phase 1B adults who are 75 years or older regardless of health status or living situation.
“We are pleased that High Point University is partnering with Guilford County Public Health,” said Don Campbell, director of Guilford County Emergency Management. “They were able to change course on previous plans and are offering the area absent of rent and utilities for the county and overall good of our citizens.”
Appointments are required. Those in the Phase1B group can make a vaccination appointment online by clicking here once the county receives additional vaccines. Walk-ins are not available. The two other vaccination clinics are located at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex and Mount Zion Baptist Church both located in Greensboro.
