Haywood County Public Health received notice of 46 new COVID-19 cases over the past week, pushing the total number of infections since the pandemic began to 4,557 cases in Haywood County.

“As cases in our community rise, we want to encourage you to practice preventative measures that have proven to be effective. Wash your hands often, try to maintain a safe distance when in group settings, and wear your mask when you cannot be socially distant. If you haven’t been vaccinated or have been on the fence, now is the time. Vaccination protects you and those around you by decreasing transmission and serious illness,” Haywood County Public Health Director Sarah Henderson said in a news release.

Walk-in vaccinations are available at the health department and at many other locations throughout Haywood County. There will also be mobile vaccination clinics held throughout the summer at festivals and events.

Vaccination clinic hours are available Monday through Friday during normal business hours at the Haywood County Health Department. Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available now, no appointment is necessary.
