The First COVID-19 Vaccines
On December 17, a handful of UNC Health System Blue Ridge teammates were the first in Burke County and among the first in the state to get a COVID-19 vaccine. The first doses arrived late morning on Thursday and by 4 p.m., we had our first teammate get vaccinated. Aislin Mosteller, BSN, RN, an ICU nurse, is the first person in Burke County to get the vaccine.
