County Launches New Appointment System for COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

by Kristin Bunton | Feb 26, 2021
An online application form now allows individuals to choose their own appointment date and time for the first dose of the vaccine.

Cumberland County continues to offer free drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination clinics for those in Groups 1, 2 and the first sector of Group 3. An online application form now allows individuals to choose their own appointment date and time for the first dose of the vaccine.

Individuals from Group 3 who are now eligible include workers in PreK-12 schools (public, charter, private/non-public schools) and childcare settings only. 

All County clinics take place at the Crown Expo Center (1960 Coliseum Drive, Fayetteville NC).

Appointments are available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. A Standby lane (first-come, first served in eligible groups) opens on Fridays, from 3 to 5 p.m., or as supplies last.

  • Tuesdays: 2nd dose appointment only. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. No standby lane
  • Wednesdays: 1st and 2nd doses appointment only. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. No standby lane
  • Fridays: 1st dose only. Appointments from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Standby lane from 3 to 5 p.m. for individuals eligible in Groups 1, 2, and 3 (childcare/Pre-K-12 school staff) only.

Anyone who has received their first dose at the Crown Expo Center on or before Jan. 26 should request an appointment for their second dose or use the standby lane. Individuals who received their first dose at the Crown Expo Center on or after Jan. 27 are automatically scheduled for their second dose and do not need to request an appointment.

Additional standby lanes can be added during Tuesday and Wednesday clinics due to no-show appointments. Monitor the County’s social media pages @CumberlandCountyNC or sign up for Cumberland Alerts to be notified when vaccine doses are available at the Crown Expo Center without an appointment for eligible groups.

Visit co.cumberland.nc.us/covid19vaccine to make an appointment. Call (910) 678-7657 during normal business hours if you need assistance with the form or have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.
