On Monday, residents 65 and older, along with food manufacturing, grocery store and restaurant workers will be eligible for a vaccine at one of the county-supported clinics. Prioritization will be given to those with server illnesses, such as cancer or kidney disease. The decision to expand eligibility came after the county administered at least one dose to more than 42% of residents between the ages of 70 and 74 and about 60% to those 75 and older. The County has vaccinated 20% of the adult population with at least one dose, that's one in five residents.
