COVID-19 Vaccine

As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more and more available, Dogwood Health Trust is helping to get the word out and supporting those who are getting “shots in arms.” While Dogwood Health Trust is not a healthcare provider and cannot order or administer vaccines, we are busy supporting regional community partners who are helping share up-to-the-minute information and coordinate the most effective, efficient and equitable distribution of vaccines across Western North Carolina. We are serving as a convenor for the Vaccine Acceleration Consortium, which brings hospitals, county health departments, health centers and others together to effectively coordinate the use of vaccines as we receive them, so that all of Western North Carolina will be ready to help every eligible person “get a spot to get their shot.”
