    RALEIGH: Today, Governor Roy Cooper visited the vaccine clinic at New Hanover Regional Medical Center, a Novant Health affiliate. The hospital is administering additional Pfizer shots to people who are over the age of 65, immunocompromised or work in high-risk environments.

    "Vaccines are safe, effective and free, and each shot gets us closer to beating this pandemic," said Governor Cooper. "It's great to see people get their additional Pfizer shot for an extra layer of protection and we're grateful for the health care workers at Novant Health for making this clinic possible."

    "In the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, our team members stood up large-scale and complex operations to administer more than half a million doses of vaccine across the state - all while caring for Covid and non-Covid patients through multiple surges," said Shelbourn Stevens, president of New Hanover Regional Medical Center and the Novant Health Coastal market. "The Governor and state have been instrumental in helping our teams ensure efficient and equitable vaccine distribution. We're energized by their visit as we continue our work to close equity gaps, address vaccine hesitancy and bring an end to this pandemic."

    The New Hanover Regional Medical Center is focused on making it easy for community members to get a COVID-19 shot with both walk-in and drive-up clinics. The clinic is offering both Pfizer additional shots as well as initial doses of all three vaccines. People can make an appointment online or walk up to get a vaccine.

    On Thursday, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services announced a significant milestone in the fight against the virus. Seventy percent of North Carolina adults have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

    To date, North Carolina has administered more than 11.3 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, with 65 percent of adults fully vaccinated. Seventy percent of adults have had at least one shot, including 91 percent of people ages 65 and older.

    North Carolinians can learn more about the state's vaccine distribution at myspot.nc.gov (English) or Vacunate.nc.gov (Spanish). Find a nearby vaccine provider using NCDHHS' online tool, Find a Vaccine Location. The state's COVID-19 vaccine hotline number is 888-675-4567.
