Beaverhead County Health Dept Announces 1B COVID Vaccine Guidelines

Phase 1B COVID-vaccine Community Clinics Coming Soon!


Public Health and its partners are planning for 3 community clinics to vaccinate people who fall within 1B. These groups include:


a) Everyone 70 years and older.

b) American Indians and other people of color who

may be at elevated risk for COVID-19

complications.

c) People 18 and older with high-risk medical

conditions. Those qualifying conditions are:

1. Cancer

2. Chronic kidney disease

3. COPD

4. Down Syndrome

5. Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary

artery disease, or cardiomyopathies

6. Immunocompromised state from solid organ

transplant

7. Severe Obesity (BMI >40)

8. Sickle cell disease

9. Type 1 & 2 Diabetes mellitus

10. Case by case basis with consultation with a

medical provider

The clinics are scheduled for January 29, February 5, and February 12 from 12-5 at UMW arena. There will be slots for 200 people for the first clinic as we will be fitting in second doses for 1A recipients. We may increase the number of appointments at subsequent clinics after reviewing the flow of the first clinic.


Public health IS NOT keeping a list of names. We are working on getting a dedicated phone line for people to call to make appointments. We will let everyone know when this is available.

Clinics are being planned to provide the second doses to those who received their vaccines during these first clinics.

Do keep in mind that Barrett Hospital clinic and the CHC are providing some vaccines to their patients once they receive their 1B vaccine allocation.
