GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro's federal vaccine clinic is preparing to open on Wednesday. The FEMA site at Four Seasons Town Centre has the capacity to vaccinate 3,000 people a day for eight weeks. That's nearly 170,000 doses just from this one clinic.
With such a big operation, here are answers to some questions you may have about the drive-thru and indoor site:
How do I make an appointment?
Head to gsomassvax.org to schedule your appointment indoors or in the drive-thru, or call the COVID-19 Vaccine Help Center at 1-888-675-4567.
What if I need to change or cancel my appointment, or have more questions?
Call the COVID-19 Vaccine Help Center at 1-888-675-4567.
What vaccines will be available at the clinic?
The vaccine clinic will begin giving both Pfizer and Moderna two-dose COVID-19 vaccines. The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be given during the last two weeks of the clinic.
What part of the Four Seasons Town Centre do I enter for my appointment?
Enter from Vanstory Street and turn onto Four Season Blvd. A clinic staff member will confirm your appointment for the day. You'll then either be directed to registration or to a waiting area until your appointment time.
Can I be seen sooner if I’m early?
Those who are early will park in a designated waiting area until their vaccine appointment time approaches.
How does registration work?
There are five open lanes for registration. Someone will get the necessary information needed to confirm appointments and other details to keep a record of who’s getting the vaccine every day. Temperatures will be checked to make sure you’re in good shape to get the vaccine.
How long will it take to get my shot?
You’ll park your car in a long tent with about 10 other vehicles. All 10 people in that group will get a shot inside their vehicles. Getting the actual shot only takes a few minutes. The entire process takes about 30 minutes.
How does the observation period work?
All patients will wait in the same tent they got their vaccine at for 15 minutes.
How do I make an appointment for my second shot?
Scheduling your second appointment will take place during the registration process.
