NCDHHS greenlights vaccines for those 65 and up

Jan. 14. By Dave Vieser. The NC Dept. of Health and Human Service has changed the age limitations for COVID-19 vaccines, now making them available to anyone age 65 and older.

The change conforms with new guidelines announced by the federal government on Tuesday. Federal health officials believe the new age limit will be simpler and make the process go faster.
