Tuesday, the Biden Administration committed to increasing vaccine shipments to each state by 16% over the next 3 weeks. That's welcome news as many people who want to get vaccinated but can't get an appointment. Wednesday, Gov. Roy Cooper said that increase will certainly help, but still won't be enough.
State officials said they'll be getting about 20,000 more doses of vaccine each week from the federal government. For some perspective, Atrium Health plans to vaccinate 19,000 people at Bank of America Stadium this weekend.
That supply still not enough to start vaccinating more groups.
“The biggest problem we face right now is that we have millions of people who need it but only thousands of shots,” Gov. Roy Cooper said.
It's the problem that's trickled down to local vaccine providers working around the clock to get shots in as many arms as possible and to the people who are eligible but still can't get an appointment.
