COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Vaccination gives us hope that the pandemic will end. Still, in the meantime, we need to continue safety measures to keep the virus from spreading: Wear a mask, physically distance from others, wash your hands, avoid gatherings and stay home when you're sick.

The public health and healthcare systems in Jackson County understand how vital getting vaccinated is to protect the community's health, our loved ones and help our community in its recovery. We are all committed to vaccinating as many people as we can and as fast as we can. We are collaborating on distributing the COVID-19 vaccine to increase the number of vaccinations most effectively and safely.

Jackson County, Asante, the National Guard, Providence, and other medical partners have collaborated to put on a drive-through vaccination event for people in Phase 1A and Phase 1B, Group 1.  Those in Phase 1 B, Group 2, 3, 4, and 5, which are people 65 and older, are not eligible for the vaccine at this time.  The state has projected its eligibility beginning February 8.  Please access the Jackson County Health and Human Services COVID-19 Vaccine website for more information on the groups, their eligibility, and where to access the vaccine.

Asante and Providence have supplied the Pfizer vaccine for this vaccination event.

Hours of Operation:

  • Thursday, January 21: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
  • Friday, January 22: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
  • Saturday, January 23: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Please go to the https://www.asante.org/covid-19/vaccination-events/, starting Monday, January 18, to pre-register for this event. You will need to print and fill out the vaccine administration record and the insurance form on this site. The insurance is only for billing purposes; if you do not have insurance, this will not be a barrier to receive the vaccine.  You will also access additional documents here, such as the HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices, CDC Vaccine Information handout, Vsafe handout from CDC, and information on how to access the booster vaccine from Asante and Providence for those in Phase 1A that are to be vaccinated at the Expo.

For all others in Phase 1B and the general public, please access the Jackson County Health and Human Services COVID-19 vaccine website.  This site will provide updates on who is eligible to receive the vaccine and where to access it.
