Outreach groups have been going through certain neighborhoods in North Carolina’s Mecklenburg County for several months now, educating and encouraging people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, WCNC-TV reported.

But on Monday, the station said the health department launched a new initiative called Doses to Doors to increase the number of vaccinated residents.
What are the details?
Simply put: Health department workers “armed with COVID-19 vaccines” joined the outreach teams “to make it easy and convenient to get a shot right at home,” WCNC reported.
“We get people that will say, ‘Yes, I’ll get the shot,’ but the follow-up has always been the issue. Will they go? How can we get people to go out and go?” Robert Dawkins with Action NC — a group whose workers have knocked on 35,000 doors since May — told the station.
