The clinic will take place at 9 a.m. Friday and will be open to people in Tiers 1 and 2 of Phase 1B of the state's coronavirus vaccination plan. Those tiers include people 65 and older and those with pre-existing conditions that put them at higher risk for COVID-19.

Audrain County Health Department CEO Craig Brace encouraged people to get there early because of a limited supply of the coronavirus vaccine.

“Limited supply will mean some will have to be turned away. We apologize in advance for this and will continue to work on scheduling other mass vaccination clinics in the near future,” Brace said in a news release announcing the clinic.

Brace said the health department will announce more details on its website once they become available.

  1. Every single case, hospitalization, and death statistic in this article is based upon a test that it becomes more clear every day is marginally useful in the first place, and completely useless if too many cycles are used. The Nobel Prize winning inventor stated it was useless, and even Doc Fauci said it was if 35 or more cycles were used. The CDC is recommending 40, and there is no control over how many the labs are actually using. In other words, these numbers are just as likely, if not more so, to be in massive error as they are to be near correct.
