Pfizer's COVID Vaccine Arrives in North CarolinaFDA authorized Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has officially arrived in North Carolina. An ABC11 article written by DeJuan Hoggard and Josh Chapin titled "Nurse Who Screens Visitors Is First Duke Worker to Get Vaccine" states that along with the FDA authorizing the emergency use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention allowed the drug to be administered to peoples ages 16 and older.

With the first doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine arriving in North Carolina, Governor Roy Cooper tweeted this past Monday morning reminding the public to act responsibly while "we get as many people vaccinated as fast as we can." Hospitals across North Carolina are expected to receive more than 85,000 doses of the vaccine between December 14th through December 18th. 53 North Carolina hospitals will receive the first batch of COVID-19 vaccine shipments which were chosen based on their size and population of the area they are located in.

According to the NCDHHS, Duke University Hospital, among others, received doses on Monday. Duke University Hospital received them at 9:17 AM and it was safely locked in an ultra-cold freezer by 10:10 AM. Duke University Hospital's first-ever team member to get vaccinated was Faye Williams, who at the age of 65, came out of retirement during the pandemic to screen visitors as they arrived at the hospital.

The president of Duke University Hospital, Dr. Thomas Owens, said in a statement, "We are proud of our team members for living our values and taking on more steps to protect our patients, their loved ones and each other." He goes on to add, "With record cases of COVID-19 vaccines currently in our community, we must all commit to reducing the spread of the infection."
