Matthews, NC – Harris Teeter announced this week that it will distribute COVID-19 vaccines in a phased approach to eligible individuals, following federal and state guidelines, when available to pharmacies.
Harris Teeter pharmacies have been approved for limited COVID-19 vaccine distribution for eligible individuals through partnerships with federal and state health departments. In accordance with local and state rollout plans, the vaccine will be administered across its 211 pharmacy locations based on availability.
The no-cost vaccination will be available by appointment only for eligible individuals while supplies last. Information regarding availability and eligibility at Harris Teeter Pharmacies is available here. Individuals interested in receiving the vaccine should check back often for updated information and eligibility criteria.
“Harris Teeter’s trusted Pharmacists remain committed to helping our patients and associates live healthier lives,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “Our teams are working tirelessly to build a seamless process for patients to check vaccine availability and eligibility, schedule their appointments and ask questions about the vaccination process.”
Harris Teeter’s most urgent priority throughout this pandemic is to protect and provide a safe environment for its associates, customers and communities while remaining open and providing access to fresh, quality products. The company will play an active role in helping distribute the vaccine in collaboration with public health officials and community partners.
Currently, those eligible to receive shots are in Phase 1 and 2, which includes all healthcare workers, long-term care facility residents and staff, and adults aged 65 and up. As of Friday, North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services reports more than 76,000 people have received second doses of coronavirus vaccines across the state, with 424,274 people having received their first doses. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates North Carolina’s population in 2019 was nearly 10.5 million residents.
Individuals with an appointment will need to provide a valid driver’s license or government issued identification card. While the vaccine is at no out-of-pocket cost, patients with health insurance should bring their insurance card to their appointment.
