The COVID-19 vaccine rollout’s initial phase was supposed to be confined primarily to health care professionals, but those plans will likely change next week.
Gov. Tate Reeves announced Monday vaccines will be made available to Mississippi’s vulnerable adults next week.
Those age 75 and older will be able to receive a vaccine. The following week, according to a press release from the governor’s office, those age 65 and older will be able to get one.
Sunflower County, which now has 2,504 total cases as of Monday, along with 62 deaths related to COVID-19, remains under a mask mandate with 78 other counties.
