EMS Director Ted Cox was the first person in Bedford County to receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine Monday. Administering the shot was Bedford County Health Department nurse Mary Prince. Front line workers, including EMS, police and firefighters, are first in line for the 200 doses the county has received.
