Plans Being Made to Distribute COVID Vaccine

The Northwest Health District is making plans to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine, as it becomes available.
Northwest Georgia Health District Director, Dr. Gary Voccio said the District, which includes Chattooga County and, eight other counties in the Northwest Georgia region, will initially be getting about two-hundred-thousand doses.

According to Dr. Voccio, front-line healthcare workers and long-term care facility residents will be among the first to receive the vaccine.

Dr. Voccio said he is confident that the vaccine is very effective and that people should take advantage of the shot when it becomes available to the general public.
