As part of our ongoing effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community from disease, South Central Public Health District is helping to distribute vaccine. This distribution follows the priority groups established by Idaho's COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Committee (CVAC). The vaccine is delivered on a schedule determined by federal partners, helping to distribute vaccine to states around the United States. Because of limited supply, it may take several weeks to advance to each stage of the CVAC's priority tier.
If you are looking for a healthcare evaluation to get tested for COVID-19, please contact a local hospital or your local healthcare provider. If you do not have a provider please dial 211 for assistance. If you are experiencing a health emergency please dial 911. See this page for more information about testing.
A vaccine for COVID-19 is only one of the ways to stop the spread of the disease. Because the supply of vaccine will be limited at first, doing other things to help stop the spread will be just as important as it is now. This means still wearing a face mask, staying at least 6-feet away from others, washing your hands often, and staying home if you are sick.
