After the first COVID-19 vaccination clinic for Campbell County seniors went askew Friday, Public Health is rethinking its approach to its next try at vaccinating the county’s 70-and-older population.

Waiting in a long line outside in the cold was “the riskiest thing my parents have done since the start of the pandemic,” said Kyouhee Choi Berger, who brought her parents to the Campbell County Senior Center for their COVID-19 shot Friday.
