“After our successful vaccine events
held in January, we have been working to be able to provide this opportunity for
residents again,” said County Manager Kevin Tanner. “Now that we have available
vaccines provided by the Health Department, we encourage those residents that
are eligible to receive the vaccine to register for an appointment.”
The vaccine provided at the events will
be for those seeking their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Residents that
received their first Moderna vaccine dose in January have already been
scheduled for their second dose appointment.
The vaccination events in February will
be utilizing the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine which requires a second dose to be
administered 21 days following the first. A return appointment for the second
dose will be made when residents receive the first dose.
The County’s vaccine distribution is
intended to supplement that of Public Health. Vaccines will continue to be
provided by private physicians, pharmacies and Public Health, as available.
