Boone Hospital CEO expects widespread vaccine availability soon

What’s the hold up on getting people the coronavirus vaccine? Boone Hospital CEO Troy Greer says he tries to keep perspective on how quickly a vaccine came together.

“In terms of historical development, this really is an amazing process that has taken place, and we should be grateful for that. Maybe a little bit patient, but also eager to participate and doing our part to ensure that the spread of this horrible disease has ended.”

Missourians 65 and older, and those with certain health conditions, were set to start getting vaccinated on Monday.

“I’m going to speculate, based upon some feedback that we’ve gotten from asking questions, it’s probably going to be moving into later February, early March, before I think it becomes widely available for just an average person in the community that’s relatively young and healthy,” Greer says.

Greer spoke on CEO Roundtable, Saturdays 7 a.m. on 93.9 The Eagle.
