NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – New Hanover County Health and Human Services’ Public Health continues outreach efforts in the community to provide safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines. Public Health will host a pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic in partnership with Flytrap Brewing and the Cape Fear Craft Beer Alliance on Thursday, July 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The clinic is free and open to the public.

“Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is quick and easy, but we know that not everyone can take time away from work or their day to get one,” said Public Health Preparedness Coordinator Diana Vetter Craft. “By meeting people where they are  – whether it’s at the mall or a local brewery, we remove that barrier and help more people get vaccinated. In turn, this helps our entire community protect each other and move forward out of this pandemic.”
