Ford County receiving 1100 Pfizer Vaccines this week

The Ford County Public Health Department (FCPHD) is partnering with Gibson Area Hospital this week to distribute COVID vaccines. An 1100 dose shipment is expected, according to Megan Reutter, Community Health Educator. Appointments are required. Ford County is in Phase 1b, a focus on essential workers and those 65 and older.

The health department says if a person has called to register their name, they do not need to register online. FCPHD says it prefers that people register online for an appointment. To be eligible for the vaccine, a person must live or work in Ford County.
