North Carolina's vaccination process will move further in Group 3, a week ahead of schedule.
Gov. Roy Cooper announced Tuesday that all frontline essential workers in Group 3 will be eligible to receive the vaccine starting Wednesday, March 3. The original timeline had non-educators in this vaccine phase eligible starting March 10.
The expedited timeline follows the approval of the Johnson & Johnson one-shot vaccine and an expected increase in vaccine supply to North Carolina. Cooper said several vaccine providers had indicated demand in prior groups was waning and they were ready to move on.
“The state and our providers continue to work extremely hard to get people vaccinated in a way that’s fast and fair,” Cooper said. “The third vaccine and improving vaccine supply will help us get more people vaccinated more quickly. Our essential frontline workers have remained on the job throughout this pandemic and I am grateful for their work.”
