From the Bates County Health Center


At this time, the supply of COVID-19 vaccine is limited and is being allocated to front-line healthcare workers and long-term care facilities. This first phase (phase 1A) is likely to take a few months and once the State feels that those in phase 1A have been adequately vaccinated they will then allow vaccinators to go to phase 1B, etc. 

We expect that all adults wanting the vaccine should be able to be vaccinated in 2021 as the state moves from phase to phase but it will take some time.

We will pass information out once we know more.
