Taking healthcare on the road
PLEASE NOTE - COVID-19 vaccinations are NOT available at The Community Care Cruiser
The Community Care Cruiser is NOT able to provide COVID-19 vaccinations at this time. We will update this page as new information becomes available. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine, visit www.getvaccinated.org.
Our mission to provide remarkable healthcare extends outside the walls of Novant Health hospitals. The Community Care Cruiser, a 40-foot mobile clinic, provides immunizations (vaccines) to uninsured children in the greater Charlotte area.
Eligible participants are children, newborn to age 18. The cruiser is designed to meet the needs of the uninsured youth in the greater Charlotte area. Those who have full insurance coverage should continue to see their primary care physician.
In light of COVID-19, appointments are now required in advance of receiving services: walk-up immunizations are not available, with the exception of Big Shotz events at the Mecklenburg County Health Department.
Step 1: There are two ways to make an appointment. You can visit our online appointment scheduler or call us at 844-644-3578 (NHHELPU). When using the appointment scheduler, please include your child’s date of birth in the last name field.
Step 2: Download our information packet in English or Spanish, complete fully and save it as a .pdf. Then email or text both your packet and a copy of your child’s immunization records to CommunityCruiser@novanthealth.org before your appointment date. Completing this information in advance will drastically reduce your wait time.
