Burke County Residents:
You may be aware that as of yesterday (2/10/2021), the Governor announced a modification to Group 3 and to begin the process of vaccinations for this group. The NC Department of Health and Human Services is currently still sending a limited vaccine supply--they have asked vaccine providers to begin on February 24, vaccinating educators/school personnel through March 10th along with continuing to prioritize health care workers, long-term staff and residents and those aged 65+.
Beginning March 10, the State will open Group 3 – frontline essential workers by State definition and as soon as we receive the guidance and definition for what essential workers this entails we will push out that information.
Everyone who wishes to receive a vaccination will eventually receive one, but please know this will continue to be a lengthy process as long as the vaccine supply coming in continues to be limited.
We will keep you updated as often as we receive state guidance.
