Starting on Friday, Feb. 12, the Walgreens store in Kitty Hawk will be administering doses of the COVID-19 vaccine under the new federal program announced last week that sends the vaccine directly to selected pharmacies.
Vaccines will be administered from Friday through Sunday. Anyone interested in registering must do so at the Walgreens.com site. Vaccine availability is an issue since about 31,200 doses were expected to be made available this week at 300 different Walgreens throughout North Carolina. A representative of the Kitty Hawk store indicated that there may be a few remaining appointments for Sunday.
Dare County Department of Health and Human Services Director Sheila Davies said that the Kitty Hawk Walgreens will be receiving 100 doses of vaccine per week and will follow the NC prioritization phases, meaning that those eligible for the shots are people 65 and older.
