Food plant workers starting to receive COVID vaccine

COVID-19 Vaccinations are now being made available to some Cargill food plant workers. Workers at the Dodge City, Kansas, Lake Odessa Michigan and Schuyler, Nebraska plants are the first in the company to receive the vaccine. 

The first round of vaccinations is being offered to employees 65 and older followed by remaining workers.  

Cargill says its working to support its employees without jeopardizing essential healthcare workers and others at high risk. The timeline for the vaccine’s rollout to other plants varies by state.
