Health department COVID vaccine clinics full this week.

District Health Department #10 announced Saturday that its COVID-19 vaccines for this week are currently full. In a press release, the health department stated that it had requested 8,775 doses of vaccine from the state and regional partners on Thursday, Jan. 14 but was informed on Friday, Jan. 15 that it will only receive 1,700 doses for this coming week. 

A link to get on a waiting list will be posted on the department’s website.

“We understand this may cause frustration and we ask for your continued patience,” said Kevin Hughes, Health Officer for DHD#10. “Through Friday, we were able to vaccinate 7,456 individuals in our 10-county jurisdiction, and that is an accomplishment we are very proud of. We are putting in a great deal of effort to launch the waiting list and a phone number so that individuals can get signed up. It is a process that involves numerous resources and has to be coordinated before it can launch.”
