300 vaccinated at Jan. 6 Dare clinic

The Dare County Department of Health and Human Services posted this update on the Jan. 6 COVID vaccine clinic held at the Baum Center in Kill Devil Hills. Those 75 and older are now eligible for the vaccine.

We are excited to share that we vaccinated a total of 300 individuals today at our clinic at the Baum Center. We anticipate it is going to take us several weeks to vaccinate everyone in this phase, as we are getting a very limited supply of vaccines each week. Individuals who have completed the form have their spot in line for a vaccine appointment. You will be called (it could take several days) with your appointment location and time when one becomes available. We appreciate your patience with us.

    Hey OBXJoe, if you want answers, take a look at NC’s vaccination plan. It’s available online through the NCDHHS site: https://files.nc.gov/covid/documents/NC-COVID-19-Vaccine-Plan-with-Executive-Summary.pdf

    You’ll find lots of answers, including this key aspect of vaccine distribution that may be affecting how it’s being distributed: “Historically marginalized populations are represented in the early phase prioritization groups.”

    I’m wondering also, if Currituck had 8,000 vaccinated – what happened to Dare? I registered on Jan 6th, but haven’t heard from the Health Dept. yet. I heard today that the federal government is saying anyone over 65 is now able to qualify. What happened to over 75. I’m way over and I haven’t heard. What has happened to Dare County. Also I went to the web site suggested and scrolled through to page 112 before I gave up. Nothing about how much allotted to Dare County as far as I looked. Way too much info not applicable and difficult to under stand. I did see where vaccine was supposed to be distributed to pharmacies and doctor offices. If the . health depts are so busy they can’t call folks – can’t they use volunteers just to call to give dates and to sign folks in if that is where they are short of help.
