Bradford County Jail Inmates Begin Receiving COVID-19 Vaccines


Many inmates at the Bradford County Jail chose to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on Thursday afternoon. Inmates were brought into the courtyard and stayed 15 minutes for observation after receiving their shots to ensure there were no adverse reactions. Bradford County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Colonel Bradford Smith said the vaccines will help bring down the level of concern regarding a possible outbreak at the jail.

The event followed similar efforts in Marion County over the past few weeks.
