Vaccine opportunities increase

Starting yesterday (Tuesday, Jan. 19th), the Piedmont Health District expanded COVID-19 vaccinations to “Phase 1b” recipients.

Phase 1b is the second group eligible to receive the vaccine. It includes: police, fire and hazmat response personnel, those living and working in correctional facilities, homeless shelters and migrant labor camps, childcare/K-12 teachers and staff, food and agriculture workers, manufacturers, grocery store workers, public transit workers, mail carriers (USPS and private), anyone age 65 and older, and those individuals 16-64-years-old with high risk medical conditions.

Individuals will be required to bring a personal form of ID such as a driver’s license, and may also be asked to show proof of qualification, such as a work ID, in order to verify eligibility. These opportunities are specifically for Phase 1b and Phase 1a.
