These clinics will provide first doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to people age 16 and older. When receiving the first dose, each person will be scheduled for a second vaccine dose three weeks later, also at the Shrine Auditorium.
These community COVID-19 vaccination clinics are organized by the Yellowstone County Unified Health Command, which includes Billings Clinic, RiverStone Health, St. Vincent Healthcare and Yellowstone County Disaster and Emergency Services.
Just under 1/3 of Yellowstone County residents (49,277 people) have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.
This will be the last week of centralized first-dose clinics. The second-dose clinics will wrap up the week of May 31.
As the community transitions from a single centralized vaccination location, RiverStone Health is scheduling COVID-19 vaccination outreach clinics. If your business, church or organization is interested in hosting a COVID-19 vaccination clinic, please call RiverStone Health at 406.651.6410 and leave a message or send an email to CovidOutreach@riverstonehealth.org. Calls and e-mails will be returned within two business days. A minimum of 20 people wanting to get the COVID-19 vaccine are needed to schedule an outreach clinic.
