MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (WNCT) – Michael Sprayberry, NC Director of Emergency Management visited the Carteret County COVID-19 vaccine clinic Tuesday.

He met with clinic staff and volunteers and also observed the clinic’s operations to prepare for the state’s mass vaccination clinic in Greensboro.

That just reinforces what I thought I knew but when I get to see it live and in person, it really helps me out.

Carteret County’s EMS Director Stephen Rae said his team scouted the former Kmart store site in Morehead City after they tried to use a local school for vaccinations. They set up in the abandoned box store and worked to bring the appointment wait-list down from 16,000 people to 6,000. 

Sprayberry said the most impressive part of Carteret County’s operation is its community support – volunteers.
