Preble County is expected to receive both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines in the coming weeks, which both require two doses.
“We are hopeful that the supply of COVID-19 vaccine will increase as the weeks move forward,” said Health Commissioner Erik Balster. “Our goal is to be able to offer the vaccine to all Preble County residents who wish to be vaccinated.”
Preble County Emergency Management Association Director, Dave Anderson noted, “we’ve been planning for these types of mass immunization scenarios along with the health department for many years.”
“We are very fortunate to have local volunteer groups to help, including the Preble County CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and Preble County MRC (Medical Reserve Corps),” he said.
Preble County Public Health is still seeking medical and non-medical volunteers to help with the COVID-19 vaccine distribution. The volunteers will work through their Medical Reserve Corps program. If interested in volunteering, please call (937) 472-0087, extension 207, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
