At least 8,000 new COVID-19 vaccine doses are being administered in Polk County this week, The Ledger reports. The Polk Health Department has 7,000 first doses for people 65 and older, and an estimated 5,600 of those are going to people on the county’s waiting list. Lakeland Regional Health has 1,000 doses for people under 65 who are medically vulnerable; those individuals have already been identified, and LRH is not maintaining a waiting list, a spokeswoman said.
