The health system is making a number of changes that take effect Monday. All are in the goal of getting more people immunized against the coronavirus.
The notable here:
• Walk ins: All Cape Fear Valley locations, including outside of this county, accept walk-in patients until clinic capacity is reached. Appointments are also available on the internet with one exception — Bladen Express Care only takes appointments by phone at 910-862-2122.
• Pfizer: The health system’s switch to Pfizer vaccines, which is a two-dose series three weeks apart, does not impact those who have received a first shot of Moderna vaccine and still need the second. Moderna second shots, received four weeks after the first, will still be available. Those ages 16, 17 or 18 must have a parent or guardian present to get vaccinated.
• Moderna: Second shots can still be received where the first shot was obtained.
