No Vaccines Pulled From County

The pace of getting COVID-19 vaccines out to the general population is not likely to improve this month, but the county is hoping to begin readily vaccinating residents over the age of 65 in February. County Public Information Officer, Taylor Wolfe, says with less than 4000 doses accounted for in the county, focus is still on health care workers.
