Thank you for your patience as local vaccinators work to immunize all those in who want to receive the vaccine. As always, you are encouraged to continue to wash your hands regularly, practice social distancing, wear a mask, and keep your social circles small.

Please note that while eligibility includes all those who are 16 and older, not all vaccines are approved for individuals under the age of 18. As of now, only the Pfizer vaccine (available through Juneau County Public Health) is recommended for use in those who are 16 and 17 years of age. Moderna (available through Mile Bluff and Phillips Pharmacy) and Johnson & Johnson are currently approved for use in those who are 18 and older.
