CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice says vaccines for those 80 years or older in the general public will begin today, Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2020.

He says several vaccination events at national guard armories and other locations are being planned for those in that age range. He says until the state receives more doses of the vaccine, the events will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“Today, we will save lives by doing this,” Justice said.

Justice says vaccines are going out today to 82 different locations to be administered to West Virginians who are aged 80 or above.

The state will announce the times and locations once they have been finalized.
