As North Carolina health officials prepare for a massive shipment of Johnson & Johnson’s recently approved COVID-19 vaccine, Gov. Roy Cooper is expected to open vaccination appointments for Group 3 front-line workers one week early.
According to a report from WRAL-TV in Raleigh, Cooper is expected to open vaccine appointments for all Group 3 members during a 2 p.m. media briefing Tuesday. Previously, front-line workers in Group 3 weren’t expected to be eligible for the vaccine until March 10, allowing teachers and child care workers the opportunity to get vaccinated.
Some Group 3 essential workers include postal service employees, grocery store workers, first responders, restaurant employees and public transportation.
