Granville Health System Offers COVID-19 Vaccines to adults age 75 and Older
January 07, 2021
Granville Health System will begin vaccinating adults 75 and older against COVID-19 next week. The system follows the schedule of the NC Department of Health & Human Services to vaccinate those listed as priority 1b, Group 1 -- anyone 75 years or older, regardless of health status or living situation. Due to the very limited supply of the vaccine, only individuals with a confirmed appointment will receive the vaccine at Granville Health System.
With a confirmed appointment, the vaccines will be administered as a car visit on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in January from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm at Granville Primary Care & OB/GYN in Oxford. The clinic is located at 110 Professional Park Drive, on the campus of Granville Medical Center.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer members of our community doses of the vaccine,” said CEO John F. Snow. “Protecting those 75 and older against COVID-19 is a critical step in our mission to promote well-being; accelerate healing; and inspire hope.”
Independent state and federal public health advisory groups have determined that the best way to fight COVID-19 is to start first with vaccinations for those most at risk, and then reach more people as the vaccine supply increases throughout 2021. The state and federal public health advisory committees made recommendations for who to vaccinate first based on the very limited supplies being available. The health system will continue to also vaccinate eligible priority 1a healthcare workers and long-term staff and residents.
“Supplies of the vaccine at Granville Health System are currently very limited, so making an appointment is required. The health system has implemented a process to match the limited number of available vaccines, following guidance from the state,” continued Snow. “Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we begin this historic and essential service for our community. As the number of vaccines increase in our community, we look forward to being part of the public health response that provides care and promotes well-being for our community.”
