The Burke County Health Department has released some information regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. On Wednesday (December 30), the Governor changed some of the groupings and phases for COVID-19 vaccine distribution. The health department has been overwhelmed with calls regarding the new changes and those over the age of 75 who want to be added to the list.
The Health Department has asked everyone to please be patient and wait until they send out information requesting residents to sign up for the vaccine. They have not received the additional vaccine nor have moved into the next Phase 1B. They will be releasing information just as soon as they have been notified to do so.
