(WFXR) — This week, the Central Shenandoah Health District celebrated distributing more than 60,000 vaccines to community members.

According to the health district — which includes Bath County, Buena Vista, Highland County, Lexington, and Rockbridge County — these 60,000-plus vaccines do not include the doses given by healthcare providers or pharmacists.

“Our public health staff members have worked tirelessly since the beginning of the pandemic and this is an incredible milestone for our team,” the Central Shenandoah Health District posted on Facebook on Saturday, April 10. “As National Public Health comes to an end, we want to say one more thank you to our team!”
