HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Reno County Health Department Director Karla Nichols is still calling on those who have not been vaccinated yet to do it.

"We do not have any large pods at this point like we were having in January, February and March timeframe," Nichols said. "The demand for the vaccine has gone down. It is truly an issue of supply and demand. We really do want the demand to come from the public and to come get the vaccine."

Even though KDHE has somewhat changed their guidance in recent days, Nichols notes that the guiding principles behind what they are going to bring to County Commissioners remain the same.

"We go back to our three foundation key points, which are vaccinations, testing and precautions," Nichols said.

The Board of County Commissioners will have a chance to weigh in publicly as they meet Tuesday at 9 a.m.
