Coronavirus

Traill County’s vaccination efforts have ramped up over the past six weeks.

More than 15 percent of county residents have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccinations since Traill District Health Unit began organizing the inoculations late in December.

Brenda Stallman, the health unit’s director, said that percentage represents 1,790 residents, with the majority of recipients older than age 65 years or with underlying health conditions.

With the exception of supply disruptions, Stallman said the process has run smoothly within the county.

“I don’t think, given the situation, that it could be going better,” she said. “There isn’t any waste in North Dakota. What we get is being given out right away.”
