Johnson & Johnson vaccine on pause

Advanced EMT Whitney Witherspoon prepares a COVID vaccine at Campbell County Memorial Hospital as the initial round of vaccinations were administered in December.

As Campbell County has seen an uptick in new cases of COVID-19 this month, the community continues to carry the lowest vaccination rate in Wyoming, drawing Public Health officials to encourage the unvaccinated in the community to reconsider.

One way of improving the county vaccination rate may be through its now eligible adolescents. Campbell County Public Health expects to receive a shipment of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine Thursday and begin offering the shot to the newly eligible 12 and up population on Friday.

Lowest vaccination rate in Wyoming. Embarrassing.

Yes I agree. Ignorance can be embarrassing, but the long term health issues and deaths are just plain disturbing. These are not the headlines Campbell county needs to boost their economy. I know several families traveling who are passing Gillette by and staying and eating somewhere safer. Ignorance has many consequences. Way to go Gillette!

No, it's to be applauded that we're not sheep. At long last the CDC has admitted that only about 10% of all the "so called Covid" deaths were attributed solely to Covid. All the others had comorbidity. So, unless you have other serious medical issues, Covid isn't such a big deal.

Why so much fear around an illness when the "Scientists have said 99.4 percent of COVID-19 cases result in a mild illness". Check the article: https://www.oann.com/study:-mild-covid-infection-provides-lasting-immunity/

Thankfully Wyoming doesn't have as many sheep as some states.

Sure gardener we can be thankful Wyoming doesn't have a lot of sheep except the ones who digest the propaganda of OANN.
