This is your spot for the information you need to take your shot against COVID-19.

Learn about vaccine safety and effectiveness, find your vaccine group and your local vaccination center, and keep up with the most current information. North Carolina’s goal is to get everyone vaccinated as quickly, safely and equitably as possible. But you may have to wait until the federal government provides North Carolina with enough vaccine. Supply is very limited now but should get better soon.

Today, Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. outlined a timeline for Group 3 frontline workers becoming eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, beginning with anyone working in child care or in PreK – 12 schools on February 24, including teachers, bus and van drivers, custodial and maintenance staff, and food service workers, will be eligible first. This includes staff in child care centers and homes, Head Start Programs, Preschool and PreK programs, traditional public schools, charter schools and private schools.
