“At the end of each scheduled clinic, if there are vaccine doses left over, we will call additional people from our list who are eligible but may not have gotten a call for that day,” Howell said. “We will continue to call that list until we use up those last doses so they are not wasted.”

Due to the high demand of the vaccine, Public Health is also taking a lot of more calls. Staff is working to answer as many calls and questions as possible. Health officials are trying to call bac anyone who had to leave a voicemail in a timely manner.

Public Health is encouraging people to reach out to other providers in the area if they are on the agency’s wait list.
