Idaho governor sees life returning to normal with vaccine

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Gov. Brad Little says life could be back to normal in about four months with coronavirus vaccinations now being administered.

The Republican governor late last week said healthcare workers and long-term care facility residents should have their vaccinations by the end of January.

He says the next wave of vaccinations to essential workers such as firefighters and police could be done by June. But Little says it will be longer than that before everyone who wants a vaccination can get one.

About 3,500 people have been vaccinated so far. State officials say that about 130,000 residents have been infected with the virus and that nearly 1,300 have died.
