Jamestown – (CSiNewsNow)  Central Valley Health is anticipating to receive 400 doses and is planning a large vaccination clinic for those 65 and older on Thursday February 18.

Register here for the vaccination clinic, or visit the CVHD website at www.centralvalleyhealth.org and click  “COVID-19”. Only those 65 and older are eligible to register and appointments are required. Appointments will be limited and once the clinic is full, the online registration will be shut down.

Other news:   Last week, Central Valley Health District (CVHD) with the assistance of Sanford Clinic, the North Dakota National Guard, and various community volunteers administered a total of 834 COVID-19 vaccinations, which included 754 first doses and 80 second doses.

Of those who received their vaccination, 746 were in the 65 and older population, the remainder were Phase1A health care workers, including University of Jamestown nursing students.

Unit Administrator, Robin Iszler says, “Our staff worked very hard this week to complete COVID vaccinations in the community. We want to thank all our partners for their assistance as it kept the clinics run very smoothly this week.”

All who have had completed the online Vaccination Interest Survey and are 65 and older have been contacted through phone or email. If a respondent did not hear from CVHD, they may have entered an incorrect phone number or email address on the survey.

Robin adds, “We will be monitoring the registration list and anyone who does not fit the age category or the current priority group will be refused service and will not be vaccinated.”

CVHD is asking for the public’s assistance to find anyone 65 and older, especially those 75 and older, that still want to be vaccinated and help them register for an appointment.

Robin adds, “We know that online registration can be difficult for some, but we do not want that to be a barrier for those interested to receive a vaccination. We encourage those who need assistance to ask a trusted friend or family member to assist them with the online registration.”

Future vaccination clinic information will be located on the CVHD website from now on at
