Vaccine supply on the rise in Mississippi
A quarter of a million vaccinations have been done in the state of Mississippi, Governor Tate Reeves announced the milestone this afternoon.
Reeves says we’re operating at peak capacity and working to get even more vaccines into the state.
He says the challenges we face now are more appointments being scheduled due to state run sites having both first and second dose appointments now available.
The state has moved from 30,000 to 49,000 shots this week which will then move to 60,000 in the weeks ahead.
Governor Reeves says he hopes the administration will work to increase the supply next week and partner with an additional federal pharmacy program that’s aimed at fighting racial disparities.
The appointments can be made for drive-thru sites set up throughout the state at covidvaccineumc.edu.
