Public Health – Idaho North Central District (PH-INCD) is preparing for the region’s first shipment of COVID-19 vaccine to arrive in the next few days. The first supplies of vaccine will be limited and offered first to specific groups including healthcare workers and residents in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. It is expected that the vaccine will become available to the general public in spring of 2021. When vaccine is widely available, healthcare clinics, pharmacies, and drive-through and walk-through clinics will likely provide vaccinations.
Vaccine safety is a priority. All COVID-19 vaccines must go through a rigorous and multi-step testing, evaluation and approval process before they can be used. They will only be approved if they pass FDA's safety and effectiveness standards.
A safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19 is a major break-through, but vaccine alone won't end the pandemic right away. Even after a vaccine is available, stopping the pandemic will continue to require everyone – even if vaccinated - to continue to follow all current guidance to protect themselves & others, including wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, limiting activities outside the home and avoiding crowds, washing hands often, and following quarantine guidance after an exposure to someone with COVID-19.
If you are a member of the general public seeking COVID-19 vaccination, PH-INCD will release regular updates informing residents when and where vaccines will be available.
