The Elko County Board of Health will also discuss the possibility of discontinuing local advertising for flu and COVID-19 vaccines.

Jon Karr, an Elko County Board of Health commissioner, is alleged to have stated that the item should not have been added to the agenda and that he doesn’t see it moving forward.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Karr stated that “We’ve been notified already by legal that we do not have the authority to issue the moratorium.”
“I believe it’s just a miscommunication, and I’m hoping it gets tabled indefinitely,” he added.
According to the report, a resident raised concerns over vaccine side effects such as inflation and heart problems. DeSantis initiated an investigation into vaccines. According to the report, Karr claimed that the city also referenced “right-wing editorials.”
Karr stated that people have two options: they can either get the vaccine or not.
“You have the right, together with your doctor, to decide which vaccines you should or should not receive.” … Not rural commissioners with more insight.
