50 North Helping Seniors Sign Up For Vaccine

A hotline has been established by 50 North to help Hancock County seniors get pre-registered to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Executive Director Carolyn Copus says Hancock Public Health was getting overwhelmed with the number of people contacting them for assistance in signing up so they stepped in to help out.

She says 50 North registered more than 450 seniors on Friday, the first day the hotline was up.

Seniors can call 50 North at 419-423-8496 to get pre-registered.
