Duke Raleigh Hospital Among Partners Staffing PNC COVID-19 Vaccination Site

Duke Raleigh Hospital partnered with Wake County Public Health, PNC Arena, WakeMed Health & Hospitals, and UNC REX Healthcare to open an appointment only COVID-19 vaccination drive-thru at PNC Arena today.  

The site is Wake County’s third mass vaccination site. Duke Raleigh Hospital and other hospital partners worked with Wake County Public Health to administer vaccinations, assist with logistics and provide medical support to create this efficient and safe appointment-only drive-thru site, with support from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

“We are proud to provide support for this appointment only COVID-19 vaccination drive-thru partnership,” said Leigh Bleecker, Interim President of Duke Raleigh Hospital. “This partnership is one more step to helping us vaccinate more North Carolinians and put an end to the pandemic and return to the places and people we love.”

The site will begin with two days of vaccinations today and Saturday, with the goal of inviting more than 2,100 health care workers and those 65 and older from Wake County’s COVID-19 vaccine waitlist.

106-year-old Raleigh Woman Shares Pandemic Experiences

Dorothy Harris lived through the 1918 Spanish Flu. Yesterday, the 106-year-old received the COVID-19 vaccination on the Duke Raleigh Hospital campus to help her through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dorothy said she received the vaccine because she knows it will help get her back to the people she loves—most especially her nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren that she hasn’t been able to see during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As she waited in observation after receiving her first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Dorothy reflected on the Spanish Flu, sharing what she recalled as a toddler in Chatham County.

“I know how sick we all were,” Dorothy said. “Our neighbors brought food to the door. They were scared of it just like they are now.”

Back then, she said “we took a lot of precautions.”

Thursday’s trip to the Duke Raleigh Hospital campus was one of the rare outings for Dorothy since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Dorothy says even with the vaccine she’s planning to continue being cautious, avoiding crowds, and wearing her mask.
