The following is taken from the Howard County Executive social media account on January 16th:
I want the message to be clear – when Howard County receives more vaccine, we get shots in arms immediately. We’re working around the clock to rapidly scale up vaccination clinics and vaccinate up to 20,000 people per week. As we’ve known since the start of this pandemic, it’s going to take all of us working together to get to the other side of this.
Please join us Tuesday, January 19th, at 12:30 p.m. for a press conference where we will provide a comprehensive COVID-19 vaccine distribution update.
This press conference will be live streamed on the “Howard County Executive Calvin Ball” Facebook page and a sign language interpreter will be available.
Usually these announcements go out in a more formalized type of press release, so I found that interesting. Maybe because it was announced over a holiday weekend this was just the easiest way to put this information out to the community.
If more information is released I will try and update this post.
You can watch the announcement here on Tuesday: https://www.facebook.com/HoCoGovExec/videos/
I will also try to embed the Facebook video in this post.
