Delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the local health department to DHHR. As case surveillance continues at the local health department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain county may not be a resident of that county, or even the state as an individual in question may have crossed the state border to be tested. Such is the case of Tucker County in this report.

This following vaccinations clinics are available for residents 80 years of age and older. Approximately 6,300 vaccines in total will be allocated to the clinics.

Harrison County residents can make an appointment to get the vaccine on Thursday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Nathan Goff Armory, 5 Armory Rd. in Clarksburg. Call the Harrison County COVID Vaccine Hotline: 304-423-7969 to schedule.
