For Immediate Release

October 1, 2021, Jackson, WY – Beginning Saturday, October 9, 2021, the Teton County Health Department’s COVID-19 vaccine clinic will relocate to the Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole, located at 1251 S. Park Loop Road. This will allow us to serve all community members who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and interested in a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd dose. To check your eligibility, visit www.tetoncountywy.gov/covidvax or call our Call Center at 307-732-8628 for assistance. 

To book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment for Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson please visit, https://hipaa.jotform.com/TCHD/covidvax or call our Call Center. Our COVID-19 clinic will continue to operate Wednesdays-Saturdays with expanded times. Please visit our website for clinic hours and additional information. Don’t forget bring your COVID-19 vaccine card with you to your appointment. 

All flu vaccines will continue to be administered at the Teton County Health Department located at 460 E. Pearl Ave starting Thursday, October 14, 2021. Flu clinic hours will be Thursdays 10am -7pm and Fridays 8:30am–5:30pm, and all ages are welcome. To book a flu vaccine appointment please visit https://hipaa.jotform.com/TCHD/flu or call our Call Center. Please remember to bring your insurance card, cash, check or credit card. To see more details and our accepted health insurance providers, please visit https://www.tetoncountywy.gov/fluvax. Also, on Friday, October 22, 2021, we will be holding a special, larger flu clinic to focus on families and children. 

Appointments are needed for both the COVID-19 and Flu clinics. We are unable to give both vaccines at the same clinic location, but people can receive them on the same day. Flu shots are also available at pharmacies, or you can check with your preferred provider to see if they have flu shots available.

Individuals who receive a third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine or the Moderna vaccine will be receiving the same formulation of the vaccine as their first two doses. The terms ‘additional dose’ and ‘booster shot’ both refer to someone receiving their 3rd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. An additional dose is used to describe people who may have not had a strong immune response from the first twodoses. A booster shot is used to describe those whose immune response may have waned over time. Currently, recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are not recommended to receive more than one dose. They are also not eligible to receive any doses of mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine.
