North Carolina Vaccination Plan

You have a spot, take your shot. A tested, safe and effective vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. To save lives and slow the spread of COVID-19, independent state and federal public health advisory committees recommend first protecting health care workers, people who are at the highest risk of being hospitalized or dying and those at high risk of exposure to COVID-19. Our goal is to vaccinate as many people as quickly and fairly as possible given the limited supply of vaccines.
Keep practicing the 3 Ws - wear a mask, wait six feet apart, wash your hands - until most people have a chance to get vaccinated. Learn more about North Carolina's COVID-19 Vaccination Plan.
