ROCK ISLAND, Illinois (KWQC) - The Rock Island Arsenal took a step towards helping prevent the spread of Covid-19 this morning.


Rock Island Arsenal Health Clinic began distributing and administering Moderna vaccinations to all active-duty, reserve, and National Guard Soldiers, as well as all mission-essential civilian employees and other personnel performing mission-essential functions.

The momentous first vaccine was given to Mark Abdon, an RIA Fire Department fire inspector.

While the vaccines are being distributed on a voluntary basis, prioritized personnel are being highly encouraged to take the vaccine to protect those they are closest with, and to lower the spread of Covid-19.
