Governor Parsons opened up Phase 1B Tier 2 (65+ and health compromised) this week. However, CCHD DOES NOT currently have the vaccine available for this group. We are not the only ones in this situation; none of our surrounding Health Departments have received their shipments either. The demand for the vaccine has far exceeded the availability on a state level thus hindering our ability to get people vaccinated.
We have set up an online survey to take to be put on a list. We will use this list to contact who is interested in getting the vaccine when available. We ask that you sign up online rather than calling the office. For those who do not have internet access, we ask friends or family to help get them signed up, calling the office could delay the sign-up process due to the extremely high call volume and our ability to return calls at this time.

Again we thank you for your patience!
We have regular flu shots available for no charge! High dose flu shots (for those 65 and older) are also available for no charge with a Medicare card.
The health department has free Covid safety signs available for any business, school or church. Give us a call and let us know you want one or you can stop by during regular business hours to pick one up! These signs are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. A metal yard stake is included for outdoor use.
