— Due to vaccine demand being greater than supply, Butler Health System announced it is scheduling only a subgroup within 1A, as defined by the state, in Clarion County, which are residents 65 and over.
Appointments, BHS said, are limited by the number of vaccine doses received from the state, and that vaccine deliveries from the state remain unpredictable.
