Walk-in vaccinations now available in Jackson

JACKSON, Wyo. — The Teton County Health Department is now accepting walk-ins for COVID vaccinations in addition to releasing additional COVID vaccine appointments for Thursday, April 22.

“We are now accepting walk-ins from 8:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m. any day our clinic is operating,” Teton County Health Department said in a press release. “Our clinic is currently located at 510 US-89 Jackson, WY where Target will be located.”

Individuals can walk in for either the first dose or the second dose of the COVID vaccine produced by Pfizer. This is a two-dose vaccine approved under emergency use authorization for individuals 16+. If you received a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine somewhere outside of Teton County and need a second dose, please bring your COVID vaccine card and make sure that you received your first dose at least 17 days before you walk in.

If you received the first dose of the Moderna COVID vaccine outside of Teton County, WY, and need a second dose the county will be holding a second dose clinic on Saturday, April 24, 2021. You can walk-in to the clinic between 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. to receive a second dose of the COVID vaccine produced by Moderna. Please remember to bring your COVID vaccine card and make sure that you received your first dose at least 24 days before April 24, 2021.

This will be Teton County Health Department’s last Moderna COVID vaccine clinic for the foreseeable future because Teton County Health Department’s COVID vaccine allocation contains mostly the Pfizer vaccine.

“We recommend that individuals reach out to Smith’s and Albertsons to see if they can accommodate you and provide you the second dose of the Moderna COVID vaccine if you received your first dose elsewhere,” TCHD said. “If you have questions or concerns about the COVID vaccine and want to speak to one of our nurses please call our COVID hotline at 307-732-8628, option 3. Please leave a message and one of our nurses will return your call.  As of April 12, 2021, 13,808 first doses of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccine have been given out and 914 doses of the Janssen COVID vaccine have been given out. It is estimated that 39.72% of Teton County’s population is fully vaccinated.”

Albertsons and Smith’s pharmacies are continuing to provide COVID vaccine appointments. Community members should visit their websites for appointment availability.
