COVID-19 Vaccine Updates

Starting Monday, February 22, 2021, individuals 70 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, the federal COVID-19 vaccine supply chain is scarce, impacting the vaccine supply in Jackson County. With the short supply and high demand, we know more seniors will want to get vaccinated than there will be vaccines available to them in the coming weeks. This means that every older adult will not be able to get an appointment as soon as they want one, even if they are currently eligible per the state's prioritization.

Jackson County Public Health and our healthcare partners are encouraged by the number of people wanting to be vaccinated, and we are all eager to provide the vaccine.  We appreciate the community's patience; we are all doing the best we can – as fast as we can – with the available resources we have.
