Rural counties in Western North Carolina are vaccinating first responders. BPR went to a mass COVID-19 vaccination in Jackson County.
A cold wind blows outside the Jackson County Recreation Center in Cullowhee. But it hasn’t stopped officers, firefighters and first responders from lining up to receive their COVID-19 vaccines.
“There’s actually been a good turn out. It was actually real smooth once we got in line.”
That’s Kent Davis, a deputy with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. He’s worked in law enforcement for more than 35 years.
