Casper, WY – On this meeting, Anna Kinder, Executive Director of the Casper-Natrona County Health Department said that 2,000 COVID-19 vaccinations had been administered as of the end of the day on Jan. 5. And the county is expected to receive 3,425 more COVID-19 vaccines during January.
According to Kinder, next up is Phase 1B. This phase includes the elderly and people that interact with a lot of people like K-12 teachers, grocery store workers and public transit workers.
Kinder suggested as part of Phase 1B that vaccines are given to people that are 80 and older first, and people 70 and older will receive the vaccine as they are available.
Anna Kinder, Executive Director of the Casper-Natrona County Health Department, said:
“Down the road when we’re doing mass vaccinations, we’ll be able to accommodate walk-ins, but at this time, we’re not able to do that. So we recognize that not everybody is tech savvy either, so we have definite systems in place to ensure that people can still call in.”
