Coronavirus Vaccine Distribution Plans
Residents and staff at long-term care facilities will be prioritized
At a Tuesday press conference, Gov Cooper and Secretary Cohen discussed in detail North Carolina’s vaccine distribution plan. The first shipment will be about 85,000 doses, Cohen said. Those will go entirely to healthcare workers in high-risk settings of treating COVID-19 patients or cleaning up around them, which includes clinical workers and janitorial staff. Residents and staff at long-term care facilities and those at risk for severe illness also will be prioritized.
