Vaccination Clinics: Despite this announcement, we are continuing to go forward with planning public vaccination clinics. It is their goal to open 6 clinics in February located throughout the county. All vaccination clinics will require a registration. There is a link on the County’s website that allows for residents to pre-register so they may be invited to a location to receive their initial vaccine. They are in contract negotiations with AMI to manage the clinics. When the contract is completed, it will be presented to the Commissioners at an upcoming public meeting and a formal announcement will be made.
