COVID-19 Vaccine Updates
February 10, 2021
Jefferson County Health Department is grateful for the interest our residents have shown in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Currently vaccine supply is very limited. Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services receives a weekly allocation which is then distributed to the local jurisdictions.
MT DPHHS developed a population-based formula for each county in order to distribute vaccine equitably. According to the state’s data, Jefferson County has 12,221 residents. Of those residents, 4,162 qualify as Phase 1B recipients, including 1,627 residents age 70 or older.
