Kudos to all of you for such an efficient, well oiled machine you’ve created in giving first dose vaccines. My mom was the last of the day yesterday and there was still a small army of helpful people each manning their post with pride. Thanks. I know you’re all exhausted but you’re also extremely appreciated.
I am having a hard time getting an answer to one question. I have a house in NC but my primary address is in another state. Can I get the vaccine in NC or do I have to get it where my legal address is?
What is the correct email address for the COVID forms? The email address on the county website is [email protected] my email was returned with the error code "The group OCHD-Vaccine isn't set up to receive messages"
I am a teacher and have been told I have to quarantine after coming into close contact with some one that later tested positive for covid. To use the state's covid funds to cover my time off rather than my personal leave I have to get quarantine paperwork from you at the heath department but I cannot get anyone at the heath department to actually answer the phone or give me any kind of guidelines
When do you expect to start general public vaccine for COVID 19......inquiring minds want/need to know?
Schools really need to close and go virtual. There are a few schools alone in onslow county that have cases of covid 19 that will spread rapidly as we see this is happening in other counties elementary, middle, high schools and colleges. It's not worth risking anyone's health. Many schools here in NC are going back to all virtual. Smart decision!
There you go. Governor wants more tests done.
are the public kayak launching docks closed on the sound side of North Topsail island?
Thank you for the Mosquito spraying that took place on Padgett Road! I greatly appreciate the employee that sprayed as the mosquitoes as the old saying goes would t**e you off! Thank you!
I’m sorry that this was done without the most current information. I have emails from Washington DC where the VTA is meeting with lawmakers and the FDA currently. The information you just gave out is not the whole story. Please do not do this when you do not have the expertise in this field. It’s misinformation and causes undue panic. The problems you listed with v**e juice has NEVER been included in the products we or any reputable v**e store would sell. (We Have guidelines that we follow.) The FDA has said within the last few days, the regular v**e juices sold in reputable v**e stores is NOT their area of concern. The convenience stores and high ni****ne pods/cartridges are what they are targeting. So we kindly ask do not give out incorrect information that will hurt businesses and cause undue panic for something you are not fully educated about.
Is anyone going to fix the "Glitch" in SSD stating that "North Carolina will no longer pay your Medicare Premiums" and that they made us pay back money we didn't owe AND you took a ton of money out of our Monthly Checks!!!! How do you expect us to live? :(
We at Southwest Middle School are excited to have you join us on Monday, March 26th at 6PM for our Resource Fair. Thank you!
