BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Nearly 1,300 inmates and Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (DOCR) employees will get their first round of COVID-19 vaccines this week.
Inmates are qualified to get the Pfizer vaccine under the state’s Phase 1-B category since they live in congregate settings.
The Department of Health has provided all the vaccines, which are being administered all week.
Hundreds of DOCR inmates will no longer be at risk of contracting the coronavirus.
