North Carolina To See Further Delays In Vaccine Delivery

Creative Commons

North Carolina public health officials expect further delays in deliveries for coronavirus vaccines. The Biden administration informed states the increased shipping delays were a result of inclement weather. Health officials in North Carolina now warn that some providers may decide not to go forward with plans to vaccinated teachers due to the delayed supply and high demand among health care workers and residents 65 years or older who are currently eligible for the vaccine. Other frontline workers are scheduled to receive Pfizer and Moderna vaccines on March 10. The state had been set to receive nearly 300,000 first and second doses this week.
