Jackson-Madison Co. Health Dept. still urging the community to get the COVID vaccine
JACKSON, TN (WNBJ) - The Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department is still urging the community to go get their COVID-19 vaccine.
The health department says they are making it as easy as possible to come in and get your vaccine.
No appointments are needed and you can now choose what vaccine you would like to receive, whether it’s the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
The health department wanting to reiterate to the community getting your vaccine is the best possible way to get life back to normal.
“We’ve had more than 84,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine been given here in Madison county, which is fantastic, but we are a long way from reaching 100 percent of the population vaccinated. Only about 40 percent of the folks in Madison county have received both doses and are fully vaccinated,” said Mallory Cooke, PIO at the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department.
For the Memorial Day holiday, the hours at the health department will differ. The department will not be giving vaccines Saturday, Sunday, or Monday because of the holiday.
They will resume vaccinations Tuesday, June 1st from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
