The vaccine is here.

On Tuesday, workers at the Davie County Health Department began administering COVID-19 vaccines to eligible health care workers.

Suzanne Wright, Davie health director, said the department received 1,300 doses of the Moderna vaccine on Monday. This vaccine requires two shots – 28 days apart.

All eligible workers were notified, and cars were lined up behind the health department in Mocksville prior to the 10 a.m. start. More vaccines were to be administered on Wednesday.

First up were Dr. George Kimberly and Sister Martha Hoyle, volunteers at the medical clinic at A Storehouse for Jesus.

Wright said that after all efforts have been made to vaccinate the health care workers, vaccines – if available – will be offered to the next round of people. The second round is expected to include many essential workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.
