Health Dept. reaches milestone of administering more than 100,000 COVID-19 vaccines

REGION – District Health Department #10 is reporting that, as of June 1, 2021, approximately 100,461 COVID-19 vaccines have been administered across the 10-county jurisdiction, including first and second doses of Pfizer and Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccines. 

Since the COVID-19 vaccine became available in December 2020, DHD#10 launched a highly coordinated effort involving 200-plus staff, numerous volunteers, and assistance from the National Guard to first vaccinate priority groups, and then the public.  

“We couldn’t be prouder of the efforts our staff and volunteers have made to achieve this milestone,” stated DHD#10 Health Officer Kevin Hughes. “Vaccinations continue to be one of public health’s greatest tools to prevent disease and for COVID-19, it is no different. Having exceeded 100,000 doses of the vaccine is a leap in the right direction to help keep our communities safe.”
