Good progress continues to be made statewide as far as distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the state Department of Health. Health Secretary Kim Malsam-Rysdon said Wednesday that the state’s allocation of vaccine will increase to close to 19-thousand doses next week. This week, those who are 65 and over have been added to the priority list for receiving vaccine. Malsam-Rysdon said another group will be added starting next week.
Malsam-Rysdon said adding this group to the priority list represents the progress the state is making in getting through this large group.
Malsam-Rysdon said that they anticipate beginning to vaccinate this group no later than March 8th.
