On Friday, Feb.19, local healthcare professionals from Memorial Hospital of Carbon County (MHCC) and Carbon County Public Health (CCPH) will provide a COVID-19 vaccination update on Facebook Live. Participants will share information regarding current distribution schedules, availability at the local level, efficacy rates, and other questions and concerns. There will also be a question and answer portion of the panel.
Last week, Ken Harman, CEO of MHCC, expressed optimism about the vaccine rollout in Carbon County. He noted that over 20% of the adult population of Carbon County had received their vaccinations. They are hoping to have 40-50% of the adult population vaccinated by the end of the month.
