CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – West Virginia Governor Jim Justice says beginning today, West Virginians in the general public who are 70-years-old or older will be able to begin receiving vaccines for COVID-19 as Operation Save Our Wisdom continues.

Justice also says he hopes the state can begin administering to those in the 65 and over age range sometime next week once the state receives more doses of the vaccine. West Virginia has administered 100,696 initial doses of the vaccine and 16,434 second doses as of Wednesday, Jan. 13.

The governor initially opened the opportunity for those 80 and older to receive the vaccine Dec. 30, 2020.
