Vaccines have arrived in Christian County and the Chris-Mont EMA is excited to start getting them distributed. The first doses of the Pfizer Biontech COVID-19 Vaccine were received on Wednesday under the IDPH Mass Vaccination Plan, Phase 1A. EMA PIO Kevin Schott says that he and the rest of the EMA are excited knowing there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
The first doses went out to Taylorville Memorial Hospital and Pana Community Hospital. The Hospitals are on standby in case there is an issue. Schott says he doesn’t foresee there being any issues.
Schott would ask that everyone be aware that this is still fluid and it is unknown at this time when the vaccines will be available to the general public.
