Moderna vaccine vile

A vile of the Moderna COVID vaccine at Vaughan Regional Medical Center. The health department will start giving vaccine on Monday.

There are no more new COVID vaccines coming into Dallas County until mid-February, the city’s COVID czar told the Selma City Council Tuesday.

Vaughan Regional Medical Center is no longer taking appointments for the vaccine and is in the process of giving out the second dose for those who had the first does with Vaughan. If you received a first vaccine with Vaughan, the second dose is available.

Elizabeth Rutledge said MainStreet has given all of its allotted 500 doses. She said the Health Department has some vaccine, but you can only sign up for it by calling the state’s central telephone number, and that number has been overwhelmed. Rutledge said no more vaccine is expected to arrive until the middle of February, and those who received the first vaccine will be first in line to get their second shot. 

Mayor James Perkins Jr. expressed his frustration with the growing numbers. “We’re not doing right,” Perkins said. “I don’t understand why people are having difficulty wearing masks and social distancing. We really have to do better.”

Perkins said he has asked the police chief to be more aggressive in enforcement of curfews and masking laws.
