On the heels of new COVID-19 vaccine eligibility guidelines released Monday, Campbell County Public Health (CCPH) has scheduled several additional vaccination clinics.

The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) expanded Phase 1 to include adults 65 and older as well as those with certain high-risk medical conditions and critical infrastructure workers. This prompted CCPH to add more clinics, CCPH Public Information Coordinator Ivy Castleberry said in a Feb. 4 press release.

Unlike the drive-in clinics at Cam-Plex, the newly added clinics, held at CCPH, will require an appointment, the release stated.

Currently, Public Health anticipates approximately 104 on-site appointments a day, and 56 on half days, per the release. However, the actual number of appointments will depend on the availability of vaccine doses, Castleberry noted.

Clinics at CCPH are scheduled for Feb. 5, 8, 9, 18, and 26, and are limited to those aged 65 – 69, as well as those with chronic health conditions and critical infrastructure workers, per the release. Anyone receiving a vaccination at a CCPH will be asked to wait 15 minutes for monitoring after receiving the shot.

These newly added clinics are offered in addition to the previously scheduled drive-through clinics at CAM-PLEX Central Pavilion on Feb. 12 and 19, and March 12.

Those clinics are intended for adults aged 70 and older and are broken into four groups, based on the first letter of their last name.

The drive-in clinic groupings are as follows:

  • Last name starting with A-F can get their vaccination from 9 – 11 a.m.
  • Last names starting with G-L are scheduled for 11 a.m – 1 p.m.
  • Last names starting with M-R are scheduled for 1 – 3 p.m.
  • Last names starting with S-Z are scheduled for 3 – 5 p.m.

Public Health has allocated 600 doses, with 150 doses designated for each alphabet grouping, for the Feb. 12 clinic.
