COVID-19 Vaccination Planning Tools for Farmworkers

— Written By

All North Carolina farmworkers are eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations as of March 3, 2021. North Carolina’s goal is to get farmworkers vaccinated as quickly as possible, but vaccine supply is limited and may not be immediately available in all places.

North Carolina’s COVID-19 Farmworker Vaccination Plan relies on local teams of staff from farmworker health clinics, local health departments, N.C. Cooperative Extension and community health workers to get as many farmworkers vaccinated as quickly as possible. Local teams are reaching out to farmworkers, farm labor contractors and farmers to help with getting access to vaccines and COVID-19 education and support.

In the meantime, here are resources to assist with planning and help keep you safe:

Additionally, these COVID-19 Vaccine Handouts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide valuable information related to vaccination in both English and Spanish. They can be viewed and shared online or printed and posted in local businesses.
