NCDHHS: At-Home Vaccination Hotline, Access for Limited Mobility Persons

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) announced a partnership with the Piedmont Triad Regional Council (PTRC) Area Agency on Aging to provide "free COVID-19 vaccinations to people with limited mobility who cannot leave their home."[1]


As part of the partnership, NCDHHS has established the "At-Home Vaccination Hotline" which allows caregivers, providers, and individuals to schedule an at-home vaccination. North Carolinians can call the hotline at 1-866-303-0026. Online registration is also available at www.ptrc.org/covid.[2]


In the release, Matthew Dolge, Executive Director of PTRC, said, “At-home vaccines came out of our mission to serve our community and provide creative regional solutions. The program has saved lives, and we are proud to partner with NCDHHS to expand this service statewide."[3]
