Where We Are Now
More than 70,000 people volunteered in clinical trials for the two vaccines to see if they are safe and work to prevent COVID illness. Volunteers included Black/African American, Hispanic/LatinX, Asians and others. To date, the vaccines are 95% effective in preventing COVID-19 with no serious safety concerns noted in the clinical trials. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) makes sure the vaccines are safe and can prevent people from getting COVID-19. Like all drugs, vaccine safety continues to be monitored after they are in use.
You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine. You may have temporary reactions like a sore arm, headache or feeling tired and achy for a day or two after receiving the vaccine. Learn more in our COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs.
Take your shot at no cost. The COVID-19 vaccine will be available for free, whether or not you have insurance.
Who Is Eligible
As of April 7, 2021, North Carolina moved statewide vaccination eligibility to Group 5. This means all NC residents aged 16 and older are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more at the NC Department of Health and Human Services website or click here to find a vaccine provider.
