Week of January 18 Update:
We continue to receive a large number of phone calls regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, vaccines are only available through the health department. Our office is applying for vaccine administration privileges so we can offer the vaccine to our patients, but we do not know when or if we will have it available. We are not keeping a waiting list.

Buncombe County residents 75 and older can contact Buncombe County Health & Human Services to schedule a vaccine appointment. Their phone number is 828-250-5000, and they are open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. You can also register online at www.buncombeready.org.
Buncombe County residents 65 and older will be able to register for vaccine appointments later this week. Again, call 828-250-5000 or visit www.buncombeready.org to register.
