North Carolina County Starts Offering Door-To-Door COVID-19 Vaccinations

Mecklenburg County dubbed the effort “doses to doors.

The county’s health department “is offering COVID-19 vaccinations on demand in neighborhoods across Mecklenburg County,” county officials said on their website, calling on residents to “be on the lookout for our mobile vaccination unit.”

The unit is providing vaccinations on demand. People can get a shot of Pfizer’s vaccine if aged 12 or older or a Johnson & Johnson jab if 18 or older, according to a flyer about the campaign.

As we go and have those individual conversations that we know are so important and encounter someone who is ready to get the vaccine or has their concerns identified and says ‘OK let’s do it now’, that vaccine will be available at that time,” Mecklenburg County Medical Director Dr. Meg Sullian told WBTV.

While volunteers with nonprofits have been going door-to-door to spread information about the COVID-19 vaccines since May, the door-to-door vaccination effort is new, WBTV reported. The unit, which was following volunteers with Action NC, started at the South Side Homes, an apartment complex in Charlotte.

Richard Dawkins, a volunteer, said volunteers “are not confrontational” and that their job is to “dispel rumors and things.”

Most people told door knockers that they had either gotten a vaccine or did not want to; four people decided to get a jab.

Does anyone remember when the southern states were Christian conservatives. What happened to the southern states? They are now just as corrupt and evil as the blue / communist states. They lack any moral premise. Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia are now a cesspools low IQ, communist people. These states are devolving rapidly.

Yankee invasion. When I was a kid growing up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, the only people who used profanity were folks who moved in from up North to work in the DuPont plant … but cancer spreads. I moved to NC for business and lived there for 25 years. I wanted to move back ‘home’ to the Valley to retire, but the Valley I knew was gone. Yankees even held most of the seats in local government. Losing wars, like losing elections, has consequences.

Only Yankees cursed you are so full of crap.
Hell I grew up in Texas but live in red northern state now and all this Rebel and Yankee crap is just dumb. My God we are Americans and should be working together to stop the madness. But people like you stop that from happening with your backwards ass thinking.

What are these volunteers saying that the residents aren’t hearing from their own doctors? Or, what do the residents need to hear from a complete stranger that they do not accept from their doctor?

Anyone surprised this is happening in ‘greater Charlotte’? I say nuke ALL the cities. We’d be better off. Jefferson had it right. Agrarian society with small villages.
