According to Jennifer Rodriguez, Livingston County’s Public Health Director, “The Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH) plans to announce new dates for vaccination clinics as we receive more vaccine from the state.”
“Our vaccine supply is dependent on what the state provides to us. At this time, our supply is extremely limited, and as such, it may take months to vaccinate the Phase 1A and Phase 1B populations. Please be patient as we embark on this process,” said Rodriguez.
With Phase 1A already underway, Rodriguez continued, “Our goal is to rapidly, safely and efficiently vaccinate the groups identified in the State’s prioritization plan, subject to the availability of the vaccine. To date, there have been approximately 2,500 Phase 1A vaccinations throughout Livingston County, and LCDOH has vaccinated 248 Phase 1A individuals. The process has gone very smoothly.”
Livingston County Administrator Ian M. Coyle stated, “I want to recognize the work of our LCDOH staff in meeting this effort head on.”
