100,000 Mississippians receive first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine

Governor Tate Reeves says more than 100,000 people in Mississippi have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

The governor says there’s still a long way to go in vaccinating a state of three million, but he insisted officials are working to get shots to people as quickly as possible.

Reeves says the state’s website for making vaccine appointments has been beefed up to handle more traffic and more people are answering calls from those booking by telephone.

Also, Mississippi health officials are working to free up excess or unused doses at nursing homes and hospitals to make them available to the general public.
