COVID-19 Information (Novel Coronavirus)
Supply Availability: Tests & Masks
RCPH has a limited supply of N95 masks available to the public. Supplies are very limited and are first come, first serve. (Posted February 10, 2022)
The CDC is strengthening its recommendation on COVID-19 vaccine booster doses. Everyone ages 16 and older should get a booster shot either when it is 6 months after their initial Pfizer or Moderna series or 2 months after their initial Johnson and Johnson's Janssen vaccine.
The emergence of the Omicron variant further emphasizes the importance of vaccination, boosters, and other prevention efforts needed to protect against COVID-19. While there is much to learn about the Omicron variant, we do know that COVID-19 vaccines are our best tool to avoid serious illness and hospitalization.
RCPH is also offering the vaccine to those 12 to 17 years of age (Pfizer) and the pediatric vaccine (Pfizer) to children 5 to 11 years of age.
The vaccine appointment line is open Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4 pm (excluding holidays).
Do Your Part
Please do your part to slow the spread of COVID...get vaccinated, wear a face-covering indoors (no matter vaccination status), practice good hand and respiratory hygiene, get tested if you have symptoms, stay home from work or school if you have symptoms/test positive, etc. Help protect yourself and those around you.
We continue to strongly encourage eligible individuals to get vaccinated. Getting vaccinated is the best way for us to slow/stop the spread of COVID-19. RCPH continues to schedule vaccine appointments for individuals 12 years of age and older (Pfizer vaccine). Appointments can be made by calling the vaccine appointment line at 336-318-6552. The appointment line is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm (excluding holidays) as appointments are available.
