According to SMMC President Stacey Brown, there will not be a 1B community vaccination clinic this week. The hospital only received 100 vaccines this week and have more 1a workers who have chosen to be vaccinated. The state weekly allocation is focused predominately on the second dose vaccines for those who already received their first dose. This could continue for several weeks, but SMMC will update the community as more information becomes available.
