Los Alamos County Manager Harry Burgess told County Council Tuesday evening during their regular meeting that Los Alamos Medical Center has received 75 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and has begun inoculations of their staff.
“They anticipate it will be several days before they get all 75 doses administered largely due to the monitoring required for the vaccination. They’re actually monitoring their folks for 45 minutes following each administration. So that’s good news for our community. We’re already starting to inoculate the health care workers here,” Burgess said.
In response to an email from the Los Alamos Reporter Thursday morning, LAMC CEO John Whiteside said he thinks Burgess summed it up.
“We received 75 doses and we are giving them to our frontline staff,” Whiteside said.
