Press Releases (53)

May 12, 2021, Jackson, WY – The Teton County Health Department’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic is moving back to the Health Department’s building, located at 460 E. Pearl Ave, after being at the new Target building since the end of March. Before that the COVID-19 vaccine clinic was being hosted in the Presbyterian Church and in the Senior Center. 

Teton County Health Department’s Nurse Manager, Janet Garland, RN, BSN stated, “We were so grateful to have the opportunity to use the Presbyterian Church, Senior Center, and Target during the Winter and Spring. These locations allowed us to exponentially increase the number of community members we were able to vaccinate each day. The donation of these spaces is one of the reasons why we have such a large percentage of our population fully vaccinated at this time.”
