WHITEWATER VALLEY TO GET 4000 INITIAL DOSES OF VACCINE

(Whitewater Valley)--Dr. David Jetmore on Tuesday announced a timeline and other details regarding a Covid-19 vaccine as it applies to our area.  "I think we were initially scheduled to have 2000 doses for this five-county area.  Now we're scheduled to get 4000 doses," Jetmore said.  That vaccine is expected as soon as next month from Pfizer, and here’s where it will go first.  "Distributed to first-line workers, as it should be.  They're the most at risk in our society," Jetmore explained.  Jetmore said that with light apparent at the end of the tunnel, it’s more important than ever to take precautions.  "You don't want to be the soldier that gets shot on Armistice Day," Jetmore added.  There’s no word yet on when vaccine will be available locally to the general public.
