“The expansion last week added thousands of Webster County residents to the now eligible population group,” said Kelli Bloomquist, Webster County Health Department public information officer. “Nearly 10,000 residents were already eligible under Phase 1B. However, we remain in a vaccine shortage. At this time, Webster County is still receiving limited doses from the state. On Saturday, Governor Reynolds said that she was impressed with WCHD’s clinic operations and intended to allocate additional doses to us. We hope that we will see these doses in the coming weeks, but right now it’s still going to take time. If you are typically healthy, yet fall into the new expansion, please be kindhearted and allow those with severe medical conditions and those age 65 and above to be vaccinated first. Vaccine production is increasing and in the coming weeks we will have more doses available to residents.”
This week, Webster County Health Department expects to have approximately 300 doses of the Moderna vaccine available to residents at Thursday’s clinic.
