Mississippi officials said the state ran out of the corona vaccine after an appointment for the vaccination made the entire supply.
Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH) Said in a statement On Wednesday, the vaccination plan has been “drastically changed in the past few days, particularly in the past 24 hours.”
“Neither the district health department drives through the UMMC’s site nor the vaccination scheduling site, designed to support the huge trend we are experiencing right now,” the department said. We don’t have any additional vaccines yet, and every match will be linked to real vaccinations. ”
The department said it hoped to restore shipments in bulk by mid-February and would notify residents of additional volumes.
“Mississippi should understand that we can only vaccinate residents on the basis of vaccine availability. We’ll open more vaccination appointments as we get more vaccines, ”MSDH wrote.
“In the meantime, every Mississippi, whether vaccinated or not, should continue to take precautions. In particular, avoid any social gatherings and always wear a mask, ”it adds.
The shortage came a day after Gov. Tate Reeves (R) extended vaccination to people 65 years and older, as well as to people with a prior illness.
Biloxi Sun Herald Reeves reportedly vowed to launch the vaccine to first responders and teachers next week. The governor wants “Images in arms” of people as possible and quickly.
The newspaper said the MSDH hotline and its website, as well as many hospitals, had no appointments on Wednesday.
Mississippi is not the only state extending the eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine in an effort to get vaccinated quickly.
