"This event is geared toward our amazing first responders," said Melissa McKnight, Deputy Health Director at the Jackson County Department of Public Health. "This includes our county firefighters, law enforcement, rescue squads and other first responders."
Pre-registration was required to attend the clinic, and was open to both paid and volunteer first responders. Vaccination is voluntary.
These first responders will follow health recommendations for the vaccine protocol and receive their second vaccination shot in approximately 28 days.
This event is made possible due to a partnership between Jackson County Emergency Management, Harris Regional EMS, Glenville Cashiers EMS, the Jackson County Public Health Department, and the Jackson County Recreation Center in Cullowhee.
