Nebraska has cleared a path for adults of all ages to sign up for a coronavirus vaccination, but state officials say they’re still trying to overcome “vaccination hesitancy,”


Gov. Pete Ricketts says state officials have ramped up their outreach efforts to residents including Hispanics.

 

The Central District Health Department in Grand Island continues to receive adequate vaccine.

 

The Health Department is working with area schools this week to provide doses to high school students who are at least 18 years old and have written consent from a parent or guardian. 

 

The Health Department will also continue to provide mass Pfizer vaccination clinics each Thursday at the Grand Island Field House from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm through April.
