NC employee vaccination rate improves to 77%
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – In the three months since Gov. Roy Cooper ordered thousands of state employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine or get tested weekly, more than three-fourths of them have taken the vaccine, according to the latest data from the North Carolina Office of State Human Resources.
According to NCOSHR, just more than 53,000 workers are subject to the requirement. Eighteen employees have been fired for failing to comply with the order.
As of Dec. 16, nearly 77 percent of workers in Cabinet-level agencies and subject to Cooper’s order are fully vaccinated, compared to 60 percent in mid-September when the requirement went into effect.
“The vast, vast majority of them are in compliance with the executive order,” Cooper said at a press conference earlier this week.
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services mandated the vaccine without the option for regular testing for employees working in state-run health facilities earlier this year. The agency said it dismissed 16 employees at the end of September for failing to comply out of nearly 10,000 who were subject to the requirement. (Read more)
