Buncombe County residents age 75 years and older can now register for COVID-19 vaccinations online. The online registration offers opportunities to register for COVID-19 immunization appointments.

While it is uncertain the total number or type of vaccines Buncombe County Health and Human Services (BCHHS) will receive from the state each week, a minimum of 500 appointments per week will be scheduled, with additional appointments added when BCHHS receives confirmation of state allotment of vaccines.

Appointments for Buncombe County residents age 75 years and older can also be made by calling 828-250-5000 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. To help residents stay safe at home and prevent the spread of COVID-19, there is no in-person appointment scheduling.
