KLAMATH COUNTY, Ore. -- Klamath County Public Health is making plans for how they’ll get more people vaccinated.
Public health officer Valeree Lane says the department has been getting a lot of calls from people asking when they can get vaccinated.
“People are going to get served, but it’s going to be a little bit of a wait,” Lane said.
Lane says they don’t have enough vaccines to give to everyone, so patience is key right now.
She worries people’s patience might run thin.
“My big concern right now is that people are going to reach a place where they quit being safe. So, we need to remember, there's a reason why we're washing our hands. There's a reason why we're keeping social distance,” Lane said.
Lane says they’re still in Phase 1a, which includes healthcare workers and people in long-term care facilities.
Once they’re able to do mass vaccinations, Lane says there will be protocols in place.
“We'll have to have people space out, ensuring that everybody's maintaining social distance at all times,” Lane said.
Lane says they expect to have more updates on their mass vaccination plan after Governor Kate Brown’s press conference.
