Does anyone know what % of the adults in the county are vaccinated now?
I would just like to add that I filled out the ‘appointment’ form online with the Lee County Health Dept. on March 23rd and never heard a thing again. It’s almost May now. Got a confirmation email, but…haven’t heard a peep out of them since.
You may have better luck calling them, here is the phone #, 919-842-5744 , I called in March , got an appt. In 2 weeks. Good luck !
Pro Tip: Don’t use Walgreens Pharmacy on Jefferson Davis Hwy.
I have also heard bad reviews on this walgreens, the health dept is best for making appts
