Target approved by BCC as vaccination site

JACKSON, Wyo. — During yesterday mornings Board of County Commissioners meeting, the board voted unanimously 5-0 to approve the new Target location as a vaccination site.

Teton County Health Department has been working with Target and the property owner Maury Abrams LLC to create a use agreement for the Health Department to use the facility. Maury Abrams LLC is the owner of the property, but Target holds the lease for the location.

Both parties have granted consent for use of the parking lots and 70,000 square foot building by the Teton County Health Department for mass vaccine clinics. Target is slated to open in 2022 in the former Kmart plaza.

According to the staff report, there are no direct fiscal impacts. Target and Maury Abrams LLC are not charging a fee for the use of the space. There will be expenses incurred by creating a larger vaccine clinic.

The site will be used for vaccinations until May 15th. It is not yet clear when the first vaccine will be administered at the new site. Commissioner Macker called the agreement, “very exciting.”
