BANGOR — Even as COVID-19 cases continue to increase on a daily basis in the state, health care providers are fine tuning vaccine distribution plans.
On Wednesday, Northern Light Health spokesman Dr. James Jarvis said it’s likely the first shipment of vaccine for the state should arrive soon after the middle of December, but as with all things connected to the pandemic, that could change.
He said frontline healthcare workers will be among the first to receive vaccinations.
As far as vaccines for the public at large, Jarvis said, “And hopefully we will see that sometime early in the spring. We will be talking about vaccinating early in the spring.”
Jarvis said currently they don’t have a solid number on the size of the initial vaccine allotment Northern Light Health will receive.
