Triad Health Department's Advice on How to Schedule and Get a COVID-19 VaccineAs North Carolina starts a new week of vaccinations, people from different counties are following the process to secure a vaccine appointment. WFMY News 2 released an article titled "Schedule Online and Come on time--Triad Health Departments' Advice on Getting Vaccine Appointments" to review the situation, with reports changing from one county to the next. Locations like Forsyth and Davidson Counties have booked all the available slots this week while Alamance and Guilford Counties are getting ready to reopen, the latter with 4,000 new available appointments.

Even though new appointments can be scheduled over the phone, authorities like the Davidson County Health Department regard online scheduling systems as the more efficient method. This week, Davison County filled 1,200 slots in two and a half hours.

People's preferences also lean towards online scheduling. "If you don't have the technical skills find a grandchild or a friend who does. The website is much more efficient," said Mary Skenes after trying the Guilford County line to reschedule her vaccine appointment. Early rescheduling problems notwithstanding, Skenes described her experiences at the Greensboro Coliseum in a very positive light, stating that the vaccination process took no more than 30 minutes from the moment she parked her car. This corresponds with the average wait time for patients as stated by Cone Health and Guilford County, barring instances in which people come too early for the appointments. Janna Walker, Public Health Strategist for the Davidson County Health Department, recommends arriving no more than 15 minutes ahead to avoid bottlenecking.
