COVID-19 Vaccine

A registered nurse pulls the COVID-19 vaccine into a syringe.

Victoria County commissioners on Monday approved the purchase of a new vaccine registration software that officials said would make it easier to send vaccination data to the state and reduce the staff required to run vaccination clinics.

Commissioners also approved a memorandum of understanding to split the cost of the software, which is produced by a company called Luminare, 50/50 with the city. The city and county will pay $49,000 apiece.

This is really funny. 80% of the county live in the city limits. Which means 100% of the cost is being paid by 80% of the people. Wow.

Either your math sux or you missed "The city and county will pay $49,000 apiece."
