(Hillsboro) -- The Highland County Health Department and Highland County Emergency Management Agency report they have partnered to lead the vaccination process in Highland County, as the two have trained for years in preparation for this type of vaccination event.
They say the goals for Phase 1B vaccinations are to save lives of the most vulnerable citizens and to get kids back in school.
The Highland County Health Department is dedicated to keeping the community healthy using prevention, resources, and education.
In addition, they have decades of expertise when it comes to preparation and managing mass vaccination clinics. Their experience with vaccinating for the seasonal flu and the H1N1 pandemic, as well as ongoing training, has prepared them for this work.
The Highland Emergency Management Agency continues to serve the community as an information and resource support agency, and is committed to engaging with the local health department to ensure that they have the support they need to be successful.
Later this week the Health Department will be releasing registration information for Highland County COVID-19 vaccinations. They will be using a regional scheduling system to coordinate clinics, so there is no need to call the health department.
