COVID Testings and Vaccines increase according to Charlotte Pharmacies
After seeing the amount of people who were getting tested for COVID 19 decrease for a little while, different pharmacies in the Charlotte are have seen an increase in people getting tested due to the delta variant spreading so quickly.
Carolina Pharmacy has multiple locations in Charlotte, Rock Hill, and Lancaster. Staff members say they have seen an increase in COVID-19 tests and vaccines in the last week.
The CEO of StarMed Healthcare says testing and vaccines doubled this week at their Charlotte locations and most of the people getting tested had symptoms. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services reported that 50% of the population was partially vaccinated and only 47% were fully vaccinated as of July 30.
Pharmacies just want to remind people to get vaccinated and if not to remain socially distant and to also keep wearing masks.
