Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson calls out Cooper Administration on botched vaccine rollout

First in Freedom is reporting:

While plenty of states are facing challenges with how best to manage and distribute supplies of new COVID vaccines, not many are quite as slow and ineffectual as the Cooper administration in North Carolina.

We’re in the bottom 10 states when it comes to rolling out the vaccine, and Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson is properly upset about it. From Robinson’s Facebook page:


“Last week, North Carolina ranked as the 10th slowest state in the country while administering the COVID-19 vaccine.

In Greensboro, 10,000 North Carolinians have had to reschedule their appointments after the state said it would not supply first-dose vaccines next week. Not only are vaccines being delayed, according to CBS 17 Raleigh, residents from Virginia are coming down to North Carolina to receive a vaccine ahead of North Carolina citizens.

This shows a growing problem from the Cooper Administration; the administration has failed to act and give North Carolinians a clear and concise path to becoming vaccinated.

As a state, we must work with our counties, we have never faced a vaccination plan at this scale before, and we must be able to work with our counties to find a solution that will work for all. Distributing these vaccines must be our main priority in combating the virus, but the only way we can do that is with clear communication from all officials, top to bottom.

There must be a change and, it needs to happen now.”
