Mississippi officials said the state has run out of coronovirus vaccines after appointments for vaccination.
Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) Said in a statement Its vaccine delivery plan on Wednesday “has changed drastically in the last few days – especially in the last 24 hours.”
“Neither the County Health Department drive-through sites, nor the UMMC Vaccine Scheduling website, were designed to accommodate the monumental boom that we are experiencing,” the department said. “At this time, we do not have any additional vaccines, and every appointment is associated with an actual vaccination.”
The department said it hopes to revive a large consignment of doses by mid-February, adding that it will keep residents updated about additional doses.
“Mississippians must understand that we can only vaccinate residents based on the availability of a vaccine. When we receive more vaccines, we will make additional vaccination appointments.
“Meanwhile, all Mississippi – whether vaccinated or not – should continue to follow protective guidelines. Especially avoid any social gatherings. And always wear masks, “the couple added.

Biloxi Sun Herald Reports that Reeves vowed to open vaccines to first responders and teachers next week. The governor wanted more and more people to get “shot in arms” quickly and quickly.
