Boosters update “We’re pushing the boundaries of what hospitals can handle, and it’s going to be like that through January,” Dr. David Priest, an infectious diseases expert with Novant Health Inc., said early this month. As of noon Tuesday, 2.69 million COVID-19 booster doses had been given in North Carolina since Aug. 13.

There also have been deaths among vaccinated people who were immunocompromised or who had other health issues. Since early July, the vast majority of COVID-related hospitalizations and deaths locally and statewide have been among unvaccinated people, according to local infectious diseases experts and state public health officials.

State and local health care officials also attribute the current surge to colder weather leading people to spend more time indoors. The statewide positive test rate was at 30.5% as of noon Tuesday. The record for the pandemic has been 31.8%, reported Jan. 5.

DHHS said 70% of adult North Carolinians are fully vaccinated.
