Pfizer Second Dose Vaccination Event at the Jackson County Expo
Jackson County, Asante, the National Guard, Providence, other medical partners, and hundreds of volunteers collaborated on the second drive-through vaccination event for people that were vaccinated at The Expo on January 21, 22, or 23 to provide the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. The Pfizer Second Dose Vaccination Event at the Jackson County Expo took place on February 11, 12, and 13 and vaccinated 7,291 individuals with the booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
Jackson County Health and Human Services would like to thank its employees, Asante, Providence, the Jackson County Expo, Jackson County Roads and Parks, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Search and Rescue, Jackson County Administration, Fire District Three, Mercy Flights, and the hundreds of volunteers for coming together for a second time to make this important vaccination event happen.
This event was necessary because the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine increases a person’s protection from getting COVID-19. Preliminary data shows the Pfizer vaccine was 95% effective at preventing COVID-19 illness in people.
If you need your first dose, please call 211 information or access the Jackson County Health and Human Services COVID-19 Vaccine Website to see where you may be able to access the vaccine.
