COVID-19 Update


  • Due to limited supply and high demand, we are unlikely to obtain vaccines for our patients in the foreseeable future.
  • We continue to keep the office safe and clean, we have all received our Covid Vaccines, and are offering Covid testing in our parking area (rapid test or the send out version depending on the symptoms or circumstances.
  • Thanks to all who have scheduled their routine physicals, medical follow ups, and non-covid illness appointments.




  1. Sign up online at the DHHS website ( https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/ )
  2. On that website, try to register for a shot under the "Find Vaccine Locations" tab. You are not limited to your county of residence.
  3. Local pharmacies will eventually administer the vaccine - stay tuned for that.
  4. If you sign up for a WakeMed "My Chart" (via https://mychart.wakemed.org/MyChart-PRD/Authentication/Login? ) and then send us a portal message that you have done so, we may be able to add you to their waiting list faster.
  5. You can also sign up to be added to the Duke waiting list by going to https://www.dukehealth.org/covid-19-update/covid-19-vaccine-update.
