County hopes to do more drive-thru vaccine clinics

I was curious whether the county was planning to do any other drive-thru vaccine clinics for other groups after the one scheduled this month.

“Our hope is that we will be able to, because it was efficient ... but it will depend on how much vaccine we have available,” said Tanya Phillips, Jackson County health promotion manager.

Available manpower will also be important, Phillips added.

The first event, held Jan. 21-23 at The Expo, had workers from Asante, Providence, Jackson County and the National Guard, along with hundreds of volunteers, Phillips said.

The first event resulted in more than 7,200 people receiving their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. A follow-up event, intended just for those vaccinated at the first event, will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 11-13, at The Expo.

Attendees are required to bring their COVID-19 vaccination card, patient registration information, health insurance card, identification and a vaccine administration record. Additional information about required paperwork can be found online at asante.org/covid-19/vaccination-events/Jackson-county-second-dose.
