But department #10 was notified Friday that it will only receive 1,700 doses of the vaccine from the state and no doses from regional partners.

The district health department says vaccine clinics are full for the week of Jan. 18.

A link to get on a waiting list will be posted by District Health Department #10 next week. It will also be posting a phone number for individuals without internet or technology to call.

Health Officer Kevin Hughes says, “We understand this may cause frustration and we ask for your continued patience.”

Hughes says the department was able to vaccinate 7,456 individuals in its 10-county jurisdiction, an accomplishment #10 is proud of.

“We are putting in a great deal of effort to launch the waiting list and a phone number so that individuals can get signed up,” Hughes said. “It is a process that involves numerous resources and has to be coordinated before it can launch.”
