A historic moment: First COVID-19 vaccines given in Nevada County

Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital’s Dr. Dawn Harris smiles from under her mask as she gets the first COVID-19 vaccination Tuesday evening in Grass Valley. She was one of the first to receive the inoculation in Nevada County. Emergency use of the vaccine was first authorized by the Food and Drug Administration on Dec. 11, with millions of vaccines distributed since then. Six were given Tuesday evening at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, with another 210 to be given to staff within the next few weeks.
