Weekly COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

September 14, 2021, by Jessica Crisp

Due to an increase in vaccine requests, Hospice of the Piedmont is happy to announce weekly COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics at both campuses. Vaccines are offered by appointment on a voluntary basis for employees, their family members, Hospice of the Piedmont volunteers, patients, and patient caregivers.

Schedule an Appointment

If you, your loved one, your patient, or their caregiver want to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from Hospice of the Piedmont please click the link below to sign up for an appointment.

DO NOT include patient or caregiver names in the sign-up; simply use your own name and indicate that the appointment is for a patient or caregiver. We will contact you to arrange for the vaccine to be taken to the patient’s home on the date of the appointment. Staff and their family members will receive the requested vaccine at the High Point or Asheboro branch locations.

Answers to FAQs

  • Team members who wish to receive the COVID-19 vaccine are not required to get the vaccine through Hospice of the Piedmont. There are many options available in the community and we are glad to help you get connected with another vaccine site if you wish.
  • At this time we are only offering the Pfizer vaccine, but may consider sourcing a small amount of the Moderna vaccine if there is enough interest and need to justify opening a vial.
  • The Pfizer vaccine has achieved full FDA approval. Moderna is in the process of gaining full FDA approval. Both Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are approved for emergency use by the FDA.
  • People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems are encouraged to get a third dose of Pfizer or Moderna, which should occur at least 4 weeks after their second dose. You may learn more about whether you have a condition that qualifies for the third dose here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/immuno.html
  • A Pfizer booster (or third dose) is anticipated to be approved for the general public by the end of September. Hospice of the Piedmont will be able to provide those third doses of Pfizer as well.
  • A Moderna booster (or third dose) for the general public may be delayed a bit but is anticipated to be approved in the coming weeks to months. Once we are confident that the third Moderna dose will be approved, HOP will work to source sufficient Moderna vaccines for staff wanting the third dose.
  • You must receive the same brand of vaccine for any and all future doses. For example, if you received the first dose of Pfizer then your second and third doses must also be Pfizer.
