Board rejects Eggleston’s proposal for vaccine promotion effort
A proposal to conduct a local COVID-19 vaccination awareness campaign has been rejected by the county commissioners.
The proposal was initially pitched last month by Commissioner Jeff Eggleston.
He suggested that the county use a portion of its American Rescue Plan funds — approximately $22,000 — to build a series of promotions that highlight “local voices” and the “recommendation of folks in the community” to boost vaccination efforts.
The commissioners in a 2-1 decision rejected the proposal during Wednesday’s meeting. A second motion for the effort failed for lack of a second.
