February 19, 2021
In a news conference, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said the state will soon expand its access to COVID-19 vaccines. An article by the Charlotte Observer
informs that the state is planning to open coronavirus vaccine appointments to certain people in Group 3 by the end of February.
Cooper believes essential workers can continue to work safely before being vaccinated and that students will now have a safe return to schools. He wants to slowly incorporate people into their usual activities. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools leaders had already decided to bring some students back to the classrooms.
The plan to get teachers and education workers vaccinated has been put in motion. Workers age 65 and up are being prioritized at the moment. Child care staff, K-12 teachers, and support staff are also eligible for vaccination. Around 240,000 people are expected to be vaccinated across the state according to the governor.
