On Friday, October 16, 2020, North Carolina submitted to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention its COVID-19 Vaccination Plan. The goal of the plan is to immunize everyone who is eligible for and wants a COVID-19 vaccine.

North Carolina’s vaccine plan reflects five principles that guide the planning for and distribution of one or more COVID-19 vaccines in the state. The principles include:

  1. All North Carolinians have equitable access to vaccines.
  2. Vaccine planning and distribution is inclusive; actively engages state and local government, public and private partners; and draws upon the experience and expertise of leaders from historically marginalized populations.
  3. Transparent, accurate, and frequent public communications is essential to building trust.
  4. Data is used to promote equity, track progress and guide decision-making.
  5. Appropriate stewardship of resources and continuous evaluation and improvement drive successful implementation.
