The vaccine timeline has been pushed up again, with all U.S. adults considered eligible for their COVID shots on April 19th. And suddenly, there's a complication: concerns about blood clots in women who take the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

So is mass reopening imminent? Don't count on it, especially with Jackson County still considered "high risk" and neighboring counties in even higher risk categories.

Dr. Jim Shames is the Medical Director at Jackson County Health and Human Services. He visits once a week to catch us up on COVID-19 issues and current concerns. Ask your question at 800-838-3760 or JX@jeffnet.org.

Jackson County, the state and FEMA announced Monday (April 12) the creation of a Community Vaccination Center to speed up vaccination; it is due to be up and running April 20th.
