"While we are unable to immediately accommodate everyone who would like to be vaccinated, establishing this large, centrally located site represents an important milestone in our battle against the coronavirus," county Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman said in a statement. "We plan to announce additional vaccination sites throughout the county, including mobile vaccination teams, as soon as the state provides the County with sufficient doses."
