The first doses of the vaccine against COVID should begin being shipped to medical providers late this week or early next week. Just like the virus itself, there is much misinformation circulating around social media and some unreputable news organizations about the vaccine. Laclede County Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, says the amount of time it took to create the vaccine could be one area of concern for some residents………

Baker says she has no doubts about the safety of the vaccine and encourages residents to get information about the vaccine from reputable organizations. Baker says the vaccine will be delivered in a tiered-system, with health care workers, residents of long-term care facilities, and those with underlying health conditions receiving the vaccine before the general public.
