Dare County Health and Human Services Director Dr. Sheila Davies said Tuesday that “hopeful trends” in COVID-19 data are showing over the past week, but that the percent of positive tests is still concerning.
Davies noted in her weekly video update on the coronavirus that following an 800 dose allocation for this week, Dare County will only receive 300 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the weeks of Feb. 8 and 15.
She also said the county has requested to host a mass vaccination event at the end of the month with an allocation of 3,000 doses, which would provide enough shots for all those 65 and over that are on the current waiting list.
