A new shipment of COVID-19 vaccine doses will be on its way to Cherokee County shortly and the county is moving to phase two of its vaccination process.
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office stated that these groups of people will be receiving the vaccine next:
-Those 65 or older
-Firefighters, police officers, first responders, correction officers
-Grocery store workers and food services
-K-12 and childcare workers including teachers, custodians, bus drivers, and other staff
-Workers in food processing including meat processing plants
-Homeless shelters and other homeless housing settings and dwelling places
-Emergency shelters or safe houses for victims of domestic violence
-Senior living homes
Cherokee County doesn't know how many doses they will receive or the date of when they arrive. Those who fall under any of these groups will need to call a phone number that will be revealed at a later date to schedule a vaccine appointment.
