During Friday’s briefing, Gov. Jim Justice and West Virginia Joint Interagency Task Force on Director Jim Hoyer announced that 6,481 West Virginians opted to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine just within the past month.

“These people took time to get educated on the value of the vaccine and they went out and got it,” Hoyer said. “It’s a big reason why the Governor continues to press his efforts to educate people.”

“It’s never too late to make a decision that could save your life,” Gov. Justice said. “Out of these thousands of people, who knows how many lives we might save. It could be one. It could be 60. But what we do know is that every life is worth saving.”
