  • January 26th - Ages 75 and older
  • February 1st - Ages 70 and older

At this time, vaccinations in our county continue to be very limited (approximately 200 doses per week) and is not guaranteed. In conjunction with the Holmes County General Health District, we kindly ask for our community’s patience with scheduling and unforeseen changes as we move through the next several steps.

As we begin to move into Phase 1B of COVID-19 vaccinations, our focus is going to be on protecting our most vulnerable populations.I would encourage anyone who is 65 and older to consider getting the vaccination.” Says Fran Lauriha, Pomerene Hospital CNO.
