CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources will host 14 COVID-19 vaccine clinics this week in several counties for seniors 80 years old and older.

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, the WV DHHR and the West Virginia Joint Inter Agency Task Force for COVID-19 vaccines made the announcement Tuesday, Jan. 12 as part of Operation Save Our Wisdom.

“As Operation Save Our Wisdom continues to ramp up, I encourage all West Virginians who are age 80 and older to take advantage of the opportunity to receive a life-saving vaccine…West Virginia continues to lead the nation in vaccine distribution and administration because of the incredible work of our state agencies and local partners, and because West Virginians are choosing to take this safe and effective vaccine.”
