Local News

WILSON, N.C. (WNCN) — The Wilson County Health Department and the City of Wilson are hosting a drive-thru clinic Thursday for anyone eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 booster shot.

The clinic started at 8 a.m. at the old Parkwood Mall on Ward Boulevard. The city says while no one has to pre-register for the shot, you’re asked to fill out a consent form before you show up today. You’re also advised to prepare for a long wait.

The police department is at and near the clinic to help with traffic control. Dozens of vehicles were already lined up ahead of the clinic’s opening.

This drive-thru vaccine event comes as the state reports 48 percent of people in Wilson County have at least one dose of a vaccine and 44 percent are fully vaccinated.
