Vaccine Rollout in North Carolina Is Off to a Slow Start

And it’s not because North Carolina hasn’t received enough of the vaccine. Nationally, only about 30% of the doses that have been distributed to the states have been administered, which is bad.

We need to put pressure on the Governor and the Secretary of Health and Human Services to do better–much better.
