Eastern Carolina Vocational Center (ECVC) Site for COVID-19 Clinic 

Health Department and ECVC partnership is intended to increase vaccine accessibility

(Pitt County) — Pitt County Health Department is working with the Eastern Carolina Vocational Center (ECVC) to provide a free Moderna COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for their employees and for the Pitt County community. This clinic will be held on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon at ECVC, located at 2100 North Greene Street, Greenville, NC, for anyone who is age 18 years or older. 

Moderna is a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine given 28 days apart and is approved for individuals who are age 18 years or older. The ECVC clinic is being offered to eligible individuals, who need either a first dose or second dose of the Moderna vaccine. Individuals, who are seeking a second dose, must bring their official COVID-19 vaccination card or other valid proof of vaccination to the clinics.

Vaccinations will be provided outside; however, individuals will need to exit their cars and walk up to the site. Loose clothing should be worn to allow easy access to the upper arm. Individuals should be prepared to stay onsite for at least 15-30 minutes after receiving the vaccine to allow for monitoring.

“I am very concerned about the number of young adults who have not been vaccinated and I encourage them to attend the ECVC clinic on Wednesday.  This is also a very convenient and accessible location for individuals who live north of the Tar River, an area that often lacks such resources,” said Pitt County Commissioner Mary Perkins Williams, who has been instrumental in helping to implement this clinic.

Wednesday’s clinic is a Walk-In service only. Appointments are not required.
