Are COVID Vaccine Attitudes Improving? Health Experts In North Carolina Say Yes.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Nearly all first doses of the COVID vaccine have been administered in North Carolina. It comes as state health officials are adjusting the vaccine rollout.

State health director Dr. Mandy Cohen says moving forward, vaccines will be allocated to each county based on population and then divided among county providers based on vaccine capacity. She says, “I’m happy to report as of midnight, 95% of all first doses of COVID vaccine have been administered in the state,” and, “This coming week a large number of doses are committed to large scale events planned several weeks back when we were addressing that backlog in vaccines.” Cohen also says, “This week is going to feel particularly tight with many providers getting small or no allocations.”
