Governor Cooper Visits Vaccine Site in Dare County

    Today, Governor Cooper and NCDHHS Secretary Dr. Cohen visited a vaccine clinic run by the Dare County Department of Health and Human Services to see more North Carolinians get their shot.

    "Each shot of a vaccine brings us closer to getting back to the things and people that we love," Gov. Cooper said. "It's so important that we encourage our loved ones who haven't got the vaccine to go get their shot."

    The Dare County Department of Health and Human Services has distributed more than 30,000 doses so far. Dare County has one of the highest vaccination rates in the state with 47.6 percent of adults at least partially vaccinated and 36.7 percent of adults fully vaccinated.

    To date, North Carolina has administered over 6.1 million shots. More than 45 percent of adults have received at least one shot, and 32.5 percent of adults are fully vaccinated. With all adults eligible to get their shot, Gov. Cooper encourages people to talk to their friends and family who might be hesitant about the importance of getting their vaccine.
