We will continue to utilize the SignUpGenius posted on our website for scheduling vaccinations at area mass vaccination clinics. Stay tuned to our website, our FB page, and local media for these SignUpGenius links. We will provide vaccination to ALL who want vaccination within our two counties, but will be unable to serve everyone at once. New SignUpGenius links will be posted Monday morning for available appointment slots after assessing supply of vaccine and local staffing to administer vaccine. There has been overwhelming demand for vaccination.
We worked with local partners and other volunteers to provide a mass vaccination clinic with Clinton schools on Friday, 1/29/2021. 204 were registered at this event for vaccination.
