SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Sioux Falls Police officers got a special surprise Tuesday, as they found out they would be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

They were not expecting to get the shot Tuesday but thanks to some extra doses Sanford had for first responders, they got them earlier than expected.

“It’s a nice feeling that after many, many months of dealing with this that we’re moving toward a new normal,” said Lt. Jon Thum of the Sioux Falls Police Department. “We have become accustomed to life with COVID, now start transitioning to hopefully a life where COVID isn’t part of our daily conversation.”

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, the next group of people who will be eligible to get the vaccine will be teachers, people 65 or older, people with two or more underlying medical conditions, and residents in group homes.
