Gov. Steve Bullock Friday announced Montana will receive 20 percent fewer COVID-19 vaccine doses than expected through the end of the year.
Montana’s vaccine allocation will drop from 60,000 to 48,000 doses this year, according to a news release from Bullock’s office. Other states also announced cuts to their shipments Friday.
In a statement, Bullock said the news is disappointing but the state will continue to prioritize protecting Montana’s most vulnerable populations and those serving on the front lines.
