North Carolina Struggling to Keep up With VaccinationsA WCNC article, written by Chloe Leshner, titled "Vaccine Pressure Mounting to Speed up COVID-19 Rollout in Both North and South Carolina" states that there isn't enough supply of vaccine to get as many people as possible vaccinated. As it stands, anyone over the age of 65 in North Carolina will get the shot, which is what the federal government recommends, as opposed to our neighbors in South Carolina who are sticking with people over the age of 70.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper states that the number one priority of the state is to get the vaccines administered and distributed as quickly as possible. At the current rate, local county health departments and hospital systems in both Carolinas struggle to meet the demand.

Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the federal government recommend anyone over the age of 65 to receive the vaccine, several counties in North Carolina, including Mecklenburg, Gaston, and Iredell, are focusing on those who are 75 and older. Iredell County Health Director Jane Hinson says that 55% of our deaths are coming directly from the age group. "They're vulnerable and they want to be vaccinated."
