With the announcement by the Henderson County Department of Public Health that Henderson County is officially moving into Phase 1B, Pardee begins pre-registering people aged 75 or older. Effective immediately, people over the age of 75, and who have not already been included in a previous vaccination group, may pre-register for COVID-19 vaccine appointments by going online to www.yourshot.org or by calling (828) 694-8222 / 694-VACC. Once on the yourshot.org site, patients are instructed to find the Pardee location before proceeding.
Vaccinations scheduled through Pardee will take place at Blue Ridge Community College. Once pre-registered, members of Group 1, Phase 1B will receive details about their appointment date, time and location. There will be no walk-up appointments.
The COVID-19 vaccine requires two shots that are spaced 19-24 days apart. When pre-registered individuals are contacted to schedule their initial appointment, they must verify that they will be in town for their second dose before the first appointment is confirmed. The appointment for a person’s second vaccination will be scheduled at the time of their first shot.
While there is no charge to the patient, those with insurance are encouraged to bring their insurance card to their appointment. Insurance will be billed for the administration costs for the vaccine. Patients do not need insurance in order to receive a vaccine.
Masks will be required, and all persons will be screened upon entry. People scheduled to receive the vaccine should plan to come alone and be prepared to wait 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine before leaving. If a person with an appointment requires assistance, they will be permitted to have one person accompany them.
Please note, due to high call volume people may get a recorded message when they call 828-694-8222/694-VACC. We encourage people in Group 1, Phase 1b, to check the website www.yourshot.org to monitor vaccine appointment availability. Online scheduling allows us to adjust the available appointments frequently. People are encouraged to check back periodically for new availability if they have gone online and did not find an appointment.
Tips for navigating Yourshot.org website:
On the yourshot.org website, select “schedule appointment online,” and then answer a few screening questions to get connected to the online scheduling system. If appointments are available, the vaccination site - PRD COVID Vaccine Clinic Flat Rock - will show as an option.
