The Casper-Natrona County Health Department has dramatically expanded the number of people eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine as it moves to phase 1c on the state’s priority list.
Any resident of any phase of 1a, 1b or 1c can now make an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at a handful of local providers.
Residents of Priority Group 1c comprise the Critical Critical Infrastructure workforce, which spans a wide range of industries, from manufacturing and communications to information technology workers. The full list of applicable industries can be found at CasperVCovid.com.
In addition to expanding the number of people eligible for an injection, the county has launched a website to allow residents to schedule their own vaccine appointments. This online portal can also be accessed at CasperVCovid.com.
Residents who fall into one of the eligible categories can schedule a vaccine at the provider of their choice. These providers include the Health Department and the two Casper Walgreens sites.
The Midwest Community Clinic, Platte River Family Medicine, Wyoming Family Medicine, and Central Wyoming Community Health Centers also provide vaccines by appointment.
This is the biggest push to date in Natrona County to vaccinate residents.
Previously, county and state pharmacies administered most vaccines in the region.
