ROCK ISLAND Co., Ill. (KWQC) - Officials with the Rock Island County Health Department say they are cutting off the COVID-19 vaccination line to those who are not in the parking lot.

Officials say this is because they are close to running out of the vaccine.

“People who are in the line in the parking lot of the Greater Quad City Auto Auction will be served,” officials said in a Facebook post Monday afternoon. “We will get more vaccine for next week’s clinic.”
