COVID-19 Preparedness & Updates

Community COVID Vaccination Update

Beginning on January 19, 2021, the Flathead City-County Health Department (FCCHD) will begin vaccinating Tier1B individuals.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be available on an appointment-only basis for individuals in Tier1A and Tier1B at the Flathead County Fairgrounds.
The number of appointments available each week is dependent on vaccine allocation. Vaccine availability is very limited at this time, and FCCHD is unsure of how much vaccine will be shipped each week. As such, appointment scheduling will be done on a week-by-week basis, and vaccine will not be immediately available to all individuals who qualify. 

Individuals in Tier1A and Tier1B should call the COVID-19 Vaccine Line at 406-751-8119 or fill out the Vaccine Request Form to be put on the list to receive the vaccine. Please only leave one voicemail and fill out the form once. Individuals are asked to leave a voicemail with their name, date of birth, and phone number, and FCCHD will return calls to schedule appointments based on weekly vaccine allotment.

Please review the current recommended eligibility for vaccine distribution, to learn if you are eligible to receive the vaccine during this initial distribution phase. For more information about Montana's Vaccine Distribution Plan, visit Montana DPHHS.
