General public may be able to get vaccine starting in May, Two Rivers director says.
Vaccinations began last month for health care workers and those in nursing homes and senior facilities.
Katherine Mulligan, Two Rivers planning section supervisor, said the seven-county Two Rivers district, with a population of 98,000, received just under 4,000 vaccines from both Pfizer and Moderna last month and administered 2,000 of them beginning Dec. 15.
People who received the Pfizer vaccine are getting the second shot this week, 21 days after receiving the first one.
Eschliman said the vaccine is believed to be effective against the two new strains of COVID-19 emerging in Great Britain and South Africa.
