St. Johns County leads the state on senior vaccinations. As of Thursday, St. Johns County is closing in on vaccinating 80% of its senior population.
Hunter Conrad, the county administrator, said the county has vaccinated about 44,000 people of the 55,000 population that is 65 and up. He said the secret behind their success is planning.
St. Johns County Fire & Rescue and Emergency Management began planning for the site in August of 2020.”It’s run very much like a military operation and so it’s done very quick, efficiently, and very safe,” Conrad said.
