A wide array of North Carolinians will soon be eligible for COVID-19 vaccines after Gov. Roy Cooper announced all frontline essential workers can start getting their shots on Wednesday.  

“Our essential frontline workers have remained on the job during the pandemic, and I’m grateful for their work,” he said at his press briefing Tuesday afternoon.

Vaccines will soon be open to all of Group 3, which includes restaurant staff, grocers, law enforcement, farm workers, postal service employees, and many others who must complete their jobs in-person. Child care staff and K-12 teachers are also part of Group 3, though both groups have already been eligible for vaccines since Feb. 24

Certain members of Group 4, which covers adults at greater risk of virus exposure and severe symptoms – will become eligible for immunization on March 24, Cooper announced. Initial eligibility in Group 4 will be given to those who have specific medical conditions and those in certain congregate living facilities.
