Teton County Health Department has received notice from the Wyoming Department of Health that the county will be receiving additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine this month.

The increased vaccine supply will allow Teton County Health Department to host larger vaccine clinics on Saturdays from now into March for both the first and second doses of the COVID vaccine.

These clinics will be in addition to the first and second dose COVID vaccine clinics the Teton County Health Department and St. John’s Health already hold during the week.

Throughout February the county will be scheduling vaccine appointments for those who are 65 and older as well as healthcare providers, behavioral health providers and social workers, K-12 teachers and support staff, and licensed childcare service providers.

There are currently two different vaccine registration systems available in the county. Those who qualify for the vaccine based on age should use the registration form found on the county webpage, tetoncountywy.gov./covidvax or call the COVID hotline at 732-8628 and connect to the call center.
