Novel Corona Virus

Perhaps the analogy for the drive to get Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 comes from baseball: we started our slide too soon, and haven't crossed home plate yet.

The goal of getting to 70% proved tougher than we thought, and COVID is still around, though greatly diminished.

Dr. Jim Shames is the Medical Director at Jackson County Health and Human Services. With this appearance, we end our weekly visits to catch up on COVID-19 issues and current concerns.
