We are scheduling first dose COVID-19 vaccines, by appointment only, for persons 65 years or older and health care workers, school and childcare personnel. We will contact you when we have availability to schedule your vaccine appointment. If you have already called or emailed and provided your contact information, no additional action is needed.
