Local transit agencies across North Carolina will help provide transportation to and from COVID-19 vaccine sites.  According to a news release, the N.C. Department of Transportation and the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday that approximately $2.5 million dollars in Coronavirus Relief Funding is being distributed to transit agencies to provide transportation assistance.  Individuals who need a ride to a vaccine site should reach out to their local transit agency.
