WCHD receives another 100 vaccines this week

The Woodford County Health Department received 100 more COVID vaccines this week, according to Public Health Director Cassie Prather. She said those vaccines will allow the health department to finish administering them to health care workers and first responders at a Huntertown Elementary vaccine clinic scheduled today (Thursday). The health department has been advised the only vaccines it will receive next week are booster doses for those who received the vaccine the week of Dec. 21, Prather said in an email Wednesday morning. “We hope the rollout of vaccines increases,” she said. She said Woodford County Health Department has proven to be efficient “in getting vaccines in arms, where it should be, in less than 72 hours from receipt.” Before this week’s shipment arrived, the health department had already administered 500 doses of the vaccine, Prather said. She said the health department had requested 1,000 doses of the vaccine this week. In a Jan. 8 email, Prather wrote, “Ultimately, we want to get our kids back in school, businesses reopened, and our economy back on track as safely and quickly as possible. Vaccination is the best tool we have at this time.”
