Vaccine Clinic Suspended For Vaccinating Schoolteachers

A Georgia medical center that gave COVID-19 vaccines to teachers and other school employees had its vaccine supply revoked by the state.

The Elberton, GA clinic invited teachers, bus drivers, and cafeteria workers to sign up for vaccinations – violating state guidelines that limit vaccines to health-care workers, law enforcement, long-term care staffers, and people over 65.

In response, state health officials are suspending all vaccine shipments to the center for six months – a move that has outraged the local community.

Who’s in the right here? Did the clinic deserve to lose vaccine privileges for breaking the rules? Should local governments get to decide who’s eligible for vaccines?
