Registration for the vaccine is open for those within this group, and can be made here: https://www.sublettewycovid.com/vaccines
With FDAs approval of the Johnson & Johnson ("Janssen") vaccine last weekend, there will soon be far more vaccine available nationwide, and Sublette County has already received 100 doses of this COVID-19 vaccine.The one-shot Janssen vaccine does not require the same cold storage as the Moderna vaccine, and Sublette County Public Health will schedule administration of these doses separately, rather than in mass-vaccination events. When registering for the COVID-19 vaccination at the link above, respondents will be asked if they have a preference for the Moderna or Janssen vaccine. Fact sheets about both the vaccines are also available on the website.
