Starting this Wednesday, January 13, residents of Natrona County 70 or older will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The opening in eligibility marks the Casper-Natrona County Health Department's (CNCHD) move to the next phase of its vaccination rollout.

In a press release, the agency said that because of limited quantities it currently has, it does expect to run out. But it does plan to distribute more doses as soon as they arrive in the county.

In the meantime, vaccines will be free to all patients and administered at the following medical clinics: Mesa Primary Care Clinic, University of Wyoming Family Practice, Community Health Centers of Central Wyoming, Platte River Family Clinic, and CNCHD. Appointments are required, and can be made by calling the provider. Walk-ins will not be accepted.

For vaccine information about other Wyoming counties, contact your local health department or visit the Wyoming Department of Health's website here.
