LINCOLN. Neb. (KCAU) – Gov. Ricketts held a press conference Monday and provided an update on Nebraska’s vaccination process.
As of Monday, Nebraska has administered 76,882 COVID-19 vaccines. More than 38,000 of those vaccinations took place last week, and a health official stated Nebraska is one of the top states for the percentage of vaccines used.
Nebraska plans to launch a vaccine registration and administration system in late January. This means Nebraskans can enter their information and be told what phase they can expect to receive the vaccine in.
Nebraskans will be required to enter some personal information, like phone number, occupation, email, name, date of birth, and phone number, but all of this information will be confidential. Registrants will be notified if they should get a vaccine and when they can get it.
This system is not only online, and anyone with questions can call 402-555-6645 or 833-998-2275.
Gov. Ricketts also mentioned human trafficking awareness in his press conference and declared January 11, 2021, Human Trafficking Awareness Day in Nebraska. To learn more about the signs of human trafficking or where to get help, visit this website.
