We received 400 doses, the bulk of the doses will be for DC area frontline staff and medical providers who will be referred by the DC Health Department. Many people are scared and don’t feel as if they’re ready to take the vaccine, and that’s perfectly reasonable. Have an open mind and be willing to change your mind once you have all the information.
