CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A registered nurse who does coronavirus testing and contact tracing got the first COVID-19 vaccination in Wyoming.

Terry Thayn’s regular job is to oversee maternal and child health matters for the Cheyenne-Laramie County Health Department.

This year, she has been busy working to contain the coronavirus. Thayn got her first shot Tuesday and is set to get a follow-up shot of the Pfizer vaccine in three weeks. Her initial dose came from a shipment of 975 that arrived at the health department Monday.

Statewide, almost 5,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine are scheduled to arrive in Wyoming no later than Tuesday.
