COVID-19 Vaccine generic

Billie Dunnivan receives the first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Refugio County Community Center during a vaccine clinic in late December.

Victoria County officials have waited for weeks to hear when the community can expect to get more doses of one of the two COVID-19 vaccines.

And many of the county’s elderly residents, some of whom have been cooped up for months during the pandemic, have been wondering when the county will be able to start vaccinating people over 65 after several neighboring counties started to do so.

The County may need to consider using volunteers for both managing phone calls and wait lists as well as giving vaccines. There are lots of retired County employees, healthcare workers and others who can give vaccines. There are many people who can handle wait lists, such as those who volunteer to phone banks and keep track of voter lists. There are retired Administrators and supervisors who could organize these people thus freeing up current staff. We don’t want to just sit here snd be unprepared

97 more cases today one more death. Please Public Officials try harder to get the doses we need and make some kind of list that people can get on so it won't just word of mouth when there is a vaccine being given. Charlotte Bues
