State Setting Benchmarks For Vaccinations


The state vaccinated nearly 90-thousand people for coronavirus over the weekend. 

The state Department of Public Health reports that 49-thousand people were vaccinated on Saturday. 

Another 40- thousand received shots yesterday. 

One-point-four-million vaccination shots have been administered in the state, with nearly 400-thousand of those people receiving both shots.

Meantime, the Pandemic Response Committee of the State Legislature will hold an oversight hearing this week.

It is Chaired by State Senator Jo Commerford who has invited the Governor to testify.

But it is unclear whether he will accept the invitation.
