Dr. Scott Morrow issued a statement Yesterday Jan 19, 2021. Here are the takeaways. Plan for 1 more year.
Late Summer is August “Many will get first dose by late summer.”
“If you are confused, don’t be alarmed. We are all confused,” Morrow said residents should instead focus on practicing gratitude and patience.
“The solution is to ramp up production,” said Morrow, adding, “I don’t know how feasible this is.”
It’s unclear how many doses have actually been shipped into the county or how many have been administered. Other than the fraction of doses shipped to County Health, local officials are unable to track shipments to multi-county health care providers or the commercial pharmacies treating long-term care facility residents and staff.
Getting vaccinated will not immediately exempt inoculated residents from COVID-19 health restrictions, noted Morrow who suggested mask wearing, social distancing and not gathering will be necessary through most of the new year.
Let’s give the new Federal Administration who is actually interested in giving the vaccines to the American Public a couple of weeks to see what they say.
Stay Safe, Wear a Mask, be Nice
