Here’s what’s happening now:

PNC Arena, known for hosting the Carolina Hurricanes hockey and NC State men’s basketball games, will be the site for a two-day mass vaccination event for Wake County.

The county announced Friday that the large, 8,000-car parking lot will be the site for a two-day drive-through clinic. Appointments are required.

While it’s a drive-through clinic, arriving in a car isn’t required. GoRaleigh transit is available, and people with appointments can walk up to the site.

More than 2,000 health care workers and those in the 65+ age group will receive vaccinations by appointment on Thursday and Saturday.

It might not be the only time the arena is the site of a large-scale clinic. “The site will continue operating in future weeks as vaccine allocations and partnerships allow,” the county release said. [more info]

Amid pandemic, looking to the future
In a new project for Raleigh Convergence, Raleigh photographer Keenan Hairston captured portraits of people whose everyday realities changed in the last year.

They're business owners, professionals whose work focuses on people and community leaders.

We also asked two questions: What does recovery look like? And what are your hopes for the future?

What we found…. Health and safety is paramount now, but there is potential for a better Raleigh on the other side of this pandemic. [see the project
