Seniors in Durham County Receive Their VaccinationOn Tuesday, January 19th, county health departments in Durham and Wake have started vaccinating the senior population, which is Group 2 of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. An article written by Adam Wagner published in The News & Observer titled "Durham, Wake Health Departments Will Start Vaccinating Seniors This Week" stated that North Carolina had modified some changes to its vaccine rollout, which would increase the number of people who will become eligible to receive their shots.

With this current modification, any healthcare workers or staff who had come into contact with patients, anyone living in a nursing home or long-term care facility, both part of Group 1, and anyone who is at least 65 years old, part of Group 2, will receive the vaccine. In Durham County, 11,970 people have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and 3,574 have received both doses. Over at Wake County, 21,075 have received the first dose and 5,757 received both doses. It is important to remember that both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two shots for maximum effectiveness.

On Tuesday, Wake County launched a phone number, (919) 250-1515, for anyone interested in receiving the vaccine and they can be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Keep in mind, this is not to set up an appointment for your shot. Wake County officials have made it perfectly clear that people will be signing up to a waiting list and will receive invitations as soon as the county receives enough supplies. Once an invitation is sent out, the recipient will then sign up for an appointment through Wake County and register with North Carolina's COVID-19 Vaccine Management System.

The vaccine appointments will be prioritized based on an algorithm that will consider someone's age, employment, and how their area of residence has been severely impacted by the coronavirus.
