No COVID-19 Vaccines Going to Waste in Adair County

There are no COVID-19 vaccinations going to waste in Adair County. Jim LeBaron, administrator of the Adair County Health Department said you’ve heard of stories about doses not being used and going to waste elsewhere, but not here. He says there is far more demand for the vaccine than doses, so when he health department has doses available, they get on the phone and call the most vulnerable residents to get their vaccine. Lebaron is encouraging the county’s vulnerable and elderly residents to continue submitting vaccine requests via the health department’s website. Those over the age of 65 and those age 18 and older who are at increased risk for severe illness can use the Health Department website’s “Contact Us” feature to receive emails about the Curbside Clinics which will be held at the Health Department.
