Bend Fire & Rescue firefighters are starting to get their Covid vaccines at St. Charles Bend. Eighteen Bend firefighters got their first vaccines today. The department’s Trish Connolly says Deschutes County received 50 doses of the vaccine and all of them will go to first responders in the county. Connolly says a handful of firefighters in the fire department have already had Covid 19, and says more have been exposed to the virus and were quarantined. She says only about 10 percent of them have resisted getting vaccinated.
