North Carolina has doled out 95 percent of its allotted coronavirus vaccines, with demand now on the verge of eclipsing scheduled supply, officials said Tuesday.

A new shipment of 120,000 doses is expected to arrive in the Tar Heel State on Wednesday, though officials are lobbying for a boost.

The state's vaccination efforts should show the "federal government we are ready to take on more vaccine and we need those additional doses now," Dr. Mandy Cohen, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, told reporters on Tuesday.
