More than 2 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been given in North Carolina. On Wednesday, 240,000 more people in the state will become eligible to roll up their sleeves.
The state will officially move into group 3, starting with educators and school staff, regardless of their age.
“I’m super excited about that,” Courtney McNair, a high school teacher, said. “Our kids came back into the classroom on Monday so any other amount of extra protection that we can have against this crazy virus, it’s a good feeling.”
This week, McNair went back inside her classroom for the first time in almost a year.
