Idaho's Fight Against COVID-19 Improves As 65+ Population Preps For Vaccination
Monday Feb. 1, Idaho will open the COVID-19 vaccine to people 65 and older. The state warns that the group — which includes 269,000 Idahoans while the state is receiving just 21,000 doses of the vaccine each week — will take time to vaccinate.
At the same time, new cases of coronavirus and accompanying hospitalizations are on a fairly sustained decline. Idaho Matters poses your questions about the pandemic to three medical experts:
- Dr. Patrice Burgess is the Executive Medical Director for Saint Alphonsus Health System and Chair of the Governor's Vaccine Advisory Committee
- Dr. Joshua Kern is the Vice President of Medical Affairs for St. Luke's Magic Valley
- Dr. David Pate is the former CEO of St. Luke's Health System and on the state Coronavirus Task Force
