Bethel not creating COVID-19 vaccine waiting list

Bethel is taking a different approach to preparing for the COVID-19 vaccine.  First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says other towns are moving in a direction contrary to state guidance.  He told his fellow Selectmen that they're making the situation a bit worse by offering to put people's names on a waiting list, creating some angst among citizens.

Knickerbocker says they are prepared to administer the vaccine, with the health department bringing qualified volunteers on board for that work.

The first doses the town receives will be administered to first responders.
