TCHD will continue to have COVID vaccine in office
Vernal, UT April 22, 2021 – TriCounty Health Department (TCHD) COVID drive through vaccine shootout is wrapping up. Beginning Monday, May 3, 2021, TCHD will administer COVID-19 vaccines the same as other vaccines available at TCHD. Appointments are encouraged, contact TCHD 435-247-1159 to schedule an appointment beginning April 29 for May vaccination.
To date, TriCounty Health has administered over 13,000 doses of COVID vaccine. The total tri-county area, combining pharmacies and healthcare providers distribution, the tri-county area has about 11,000 individuals fully vaccinated. TCHD has vaccinated nearly 3,000 individuals since drive through vaccine clinics began on March 29. Of the doses administered during the COVID shootout, about half were first doses.
“It makes sense to move away from the drive through mass vaccination,” Health Officer Kirk Benge said. “As more people are fully vaccinated, daily and hourly demand for this vaccine will decrease, we are fortunate to have reached a point in our area where we can move COVID vaccine distribution into our regular business operations along with our other vaccines that are available.”
Available appointment times in May will be Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm at TriCounty Health Department in Vernal or Roosevelt. Visit tricountyhealth.com and follow TriCounty Health Department on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for up to date information.
