New tool makes it easier to get vaccinated

May 10. North Carolinians 16 years or older can now input their ZIP code at www.vaccines.gov  or www.vacunas.gov or text their ZIP code to GETVAX (438829) / VACUNA (822862) to get help making a vaccine appointment at a nearby location.

We punched in 28031 and got 50 providers centered on Cornelius (screenshot).

Right now, more than 90 percent of Americans live within five miles of a vaccine site. Across the country, there are nearly 40,000 local pharmacies, more than 650 community health centers and hundreds of community vaccination centers and mobile clinics where Americans can get a shot.
