Opportunities for the COVID-19 Vaccine Will Grow

As production of COVID-19 vaccines ramp up, availability to Adair County residents will expand. The Adair County Health Department is prepared and will continue to vaccinate residents as it receives doses. It will also continue to provide information about COVID-19, testing and vaccines, including information about accessing vaccines administered by other local entities.

Jim LeBaron, Adair County Health Department administrator says, “The most important thing that can happen in Adair County is having vaccine doses shipped to and administered by more and more providers.” He added that in addition to the health department’s Curbside Clinics, having other vaccinators, including healthcare providers and local pharmacies, receiving, and administering doses is a game changer.

LeBaron says if you have emailed the Adair County Health Department to be placed on their waiting list, but have another opportunity to register for a vaccine, take advantage of that other opportunity.
