COVID-19 Vaccinations

14-Jan-2021

By: Tara Morvant

Coordinated efforts to safely distribute the COVID-19 vaccination are underway. Vaccine availability will initially be limited and therefore must be distributed in a phased approach. As more vaccines become available from the CDC, more individuals and groups will be offered a vaccination.

The federal government has committed to making the COVID-19 vaccine available to every person who wants to be vaccinated. The vaccine will be free to everyone regardless of insurance or ability to pay.

  • Phase 1B: People over 70 or with a chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from COVID‑19, and students, residents, faculty and staff of allied health schools (if not already receiving vaccine or in a plan to receive from their respective schools)

Patients must contact a participating location and make an appointment at the location. LDH cannot make appointments for residents; only participating locations can.
