COVID-19 vaccine is now available to all healthcare workers, first responders, K-12 school staff, and people 70 and older.

We will have more clinic schedules posted on January 25th at swuhealth.org/covid-vaccine.

Clinics are for county residents only. It may take several weeks to get through the current priority groups before we can move to others due to limited vaccine shipments.
