The Dare County Department of Health and Human Services reported that 300 individuals in Phase 1b, Group 1 were vaccinated at a Wednesday clinic held in Kill Devil Hills, per a recent online update.
“We are excited to share that we vaccinated a total of 300 individuals today at our clinic at the Baum Center,” the update stated. “We anticipate it is going to take us several weeks to vaccinate everyone in this phase, as we are getting a very limited supply of vaccines each week. Individuals who have completed the form have their spot in line for a vaccine appointment. You will be called (it could take several days) with your appointment location and time when one becomes available. We appreciate your patience with us.”
Dare County will host two additional upcoming vaccine clinics for individuals in Phase 1b, Group 1, which includes persons 75 years and older.
