JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Onslow County Health Department on Wednesday began administering the second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to groups in phase 1A.

David Grovdahl, the Onslow County EMS Division Head, was one of the first to get the second dose of the COVID vaccine. He said he now feels relief knowing he can do his job without the fear of catching the coronavirus.

“This is really important to me. For myself, for my family, for activities and friends as well as the community.”
