Health Agencies Prepare For Eventual Vaccine Distribution

With COVID vaccines coming closer and closer to being released, and promising test results from both Pfizer and Moderna in the last couple of weeks, health officials are starting to plan how they would be distributed.  Hood River County Health Officer Dr. Christopher Van Tilburg outlined in a Facebook video what is going on to get ready, noting the County has had a vaccine distribution plan dating back to before COVID and has been refreshed.  Health officials have indicated once vaccine becomes available, front line health care responders and those most at-risk from COVID will be prioritized.  Until then, they emphasize the importance of wearing face masks in public, practicing social distancing, and washing hands frequently.
