Pender County Board of Commissioners Chairman George Brown issued a letter today to Dr. Amanda Fuller Moore, the state pharmacist, to request an equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccine.

Brown cites that Pender County ranks 98 out of 100 counties in terms of the total number of vaccinations per capita received since mid-December. He also noted that Pender County ranks 46 in the cumulative population and 65th in population of citizens 65 years and older.

He based the findings on the state’s own data released late last week.
