(Douglas County, NE) -- The Douglas County Health Department's COVID-19 Vaccine Registration Site is now up and running, ready to take appointments to vaccinate county residents aged 80 and older.
DCHD is coordinating vaccination sites in a partnership with Nebraska Medicine, CHI Health, Creighton University and Methodist Health System. The upcoming clinics are only for Douglas County residents who were born in 1941 or earlier. You can access the website here.
The locations and times for the clinics are:
- Christ Community Church at 404 South 108th Avenue on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The clinics will provide vaccine from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days until further notice. This begins Feb. 2.
- CHI Immanuel Medical Center, in the back of the hospital, at 72nd Street and Sorensen Parkway from 9-5 on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning Feb. 3 until further notice.
- The Nebraska Medicine Testing and Vaccination Clinic at 144th and Millard Avenue on Thursdays from 9-5 and Sundays from 9-3 until further notice. That begins Feb. 4.
- Creighton University’s Rasmussen Center at 702 North 17th Street on Saturdays beginning Feb. 6 from 9-5. This clinic will continue until further notice.
DCHD asks that people do not call these locations as they will not be able to make an appointment. The health department says you must have a appointment to be vaccinated, and no drop-ins will be allowed.
Anyone in this group (80-plus) who does not have any computer access is asked to call the Health Department’s Information Line at (402) 444-3400 to set an appointment.
DCHD also will provide vaccine on a limited basis to OneWorld Community Health Center, Charles Drew Health Center, and the Fred LeRoy Health Center. Those Federally Qualified Health Centers will provide vaccine by appointment to their patients and community members. Kohll’s Pharmacy will provide vaccinations to independent living and retirement communities. The Nebraska Methodist College mobile diabetes unit will be serving vulnerable populations. Details on a pilot program with two Hy-Vee Pharmacy locations will be released shortly.
