My wife and I are both over 65 and have been registered to get an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination for many weeks here in Moore County with no success.
On Feb. 5, I went online with Cape Fear Valley Health in neighboring Cumberland County and within five minutes easily got appointments for both of us for Feb. 9. It’s a nice drive across Route 690 into Fayetteville, where we quickly received our first dose of Pfizer vaccine.
Cape Fear Valley Health runs a very efficient vaccinating process — it only took us about 25 minutes — and they thanked us for coming over from Pinehurst. Go figure.
