State goals

The state expects to lift the mask mandate and to ease other public health recommendations once two-thirds of adult North Carolinians have received at least one vaccine dose and if trends remain stable. Currently anyone 16 and older in North Carolina is eligible for a vaccine and supply is widely available across the state, often with no wait for an appointment.

The state has administered more than 6.5 million vaccines. To date, 46.9% of adults in North Carolina are at least partially vaccinated, and 35.1% are fully vaccinated. More than 76% of people 65 and older have had at least one shot.
