Educators and COVID-19 Vaccine

With a limited supply of the COVID-19 vaccine, everyone in North Carolina has been assigned to particular groups depending on profession, age and at-risk level. Groups 1 and 2 are in the process of being vaccinated and on February 24th Group 3 will be eligible. If you work in the following fields, you are part of Group 3 and eligible:

  • Child care centers and homes
  • Head Start Programs
  • Preschool and PreK programs
  • Traditional public schools
  • Charter schools
  • Private schools

“I am grateful to all of our educators and school personnel for going above and beyond in this pandemic to care for children and help them continue to learn,” said Governor Cooper. “Starting with a smaller number of Group 3 frontline essential workers helps providers streamline vaccine distribution effectively and efficiently.” To read more about your eligibility, click here.
