OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — CHI Health said Tuesday it expects to begin vaccination of staff by the weekend.

"We have a small army working around the clock to really put our plan together," said Kathy Bressler, CHI's senior vice president.

She's part of the team developing the plan. Frontline workers, including doctors, nurses, and cleaning staff, will be first.

"All of those folks will go in line before any of us who predominately work in an office setting," she said.

The vaccines require more than what your average freezer provides. CHI says storage can be a concern, but they have the ultra-low temperature freezers.
