DHD#10 Clinics are full next week; waiting list coming soon
January 16, 2021 – On Thursday, January 14, District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) requested 8,775 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from the state and our regional partners for the week of January 18. We were notified on Friday, January 15, that we will only receive 1,700 doses from the state and no doses from our regional partners.
At this time, all clinics are full for the week of January 18. We will be posting a link to get on a waiting list sometime next week and will also post a phone number for those without internet or technology to call.
"We understand this may cause frustration and we ask for your continued patience," stated Kevin Hughes, Health Officer for DHD#10. "Through Friday, we were able to vaccinate 7,456 individuals in our 10-county jurisdiction, and that is an accomplishment we are very proud of. We are putting in a great deal of effort to launch the waiting list and a phone number so that individuals can get signed up. It is a process that involves numerous resources and has to be coordinated before it can launch."
DHD#10 continues to ask for patience during this period of uncertainty and we ask that individuals please refrain from calling the health department to ask about scheduling the vaccine. We will continue to keep our communities updated via press release, social media, our website at www.dhd10.org/covid-19-vaccine, and our Public Health Alert. If you have not subscribed to our Public Health Alert, please do so at www.dhd10.org/subscribe.
We ask for your patience as we continue to plan and prepare for additional COVID-19 vaccination clinics.
