According to the health district, more vaccine shipments are expected in the coming weeks. The district plans to expand who is eligible to receive the vaccine as more doses become available, but the vaccines are being offered to those 65 and older because they have an increased risk of developing severe symptoms from COVID-19, according to the release.
