CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WNCT) – Beginning, Friday, January 15, the Carteret County Health Department will begin taking requests to be placed on the vaccine appointment waiting list for individuals in Group 2, who are 65 years and older.

Individuals who are 75 years and older are currently listed on the vaccine appointment waiting list will be prioritized first to receive vaccine appointments as more vaccines become available. Health officials will notify individuals once appointments become available.
