Health officials acknowledge COVID vaccine ‘line jumpers’ in Gallatin County

BOZEMAN — The Gallatin City-County Health Department, along with Bozeman Health, is addressing two new concerns when it comes to local emergency rules and vaccine distribution – and according to Health Officer Matt Kelley, that includes how some people have found a way to “jump the line.”

“While we are down significantly from where we were in November and that is absolutely a good thing, I want to make sure we are keeping in mind the long term,” Kelley said Friday during his weekly press call.
