Idahoans Ages 16+ Approved for COVID-19 Vaccines April 5
This just keeps changing regarding the rollout for COVID-19 vaccinations. I just read an email alert saying vaccine locations are allowing age 45+ for particular locations. That has changed again.
Governor Brad Little just made an announcement moving dates up for certain ages. You can now get your vaccination if you're age 16 up beginning April 5, 2021.
This is one of the reasons I've mentioned to keep an eye on these alerts in the Mix app or to sign-up for a pre-registration opportunity. We all work crazy hours and it's probably easy to miss where we are on vaccine opportunities. There continue to be new vaccines available and a lot going to waste. This should really change that.
The Governor also mentioned that if you at least one medical condition that you could begin your vaccine as early as March 29, 2021.
This is big news for everyone considering the age groups that are being impacted the most. That is a 29-year gap in age groups that can now receive a vaccination. That means you could be fully vaccinated by the end of April or the first week of May. That is a major difference considering it only takes one shot to catch the coronavirus.
There are several places to get information regarding the vaccination process. I'll post a link to the Governor's website which gives you options to learn about the all including a place to register for the vaccination.
You want to plan on a 28 day period depending on the vaccine before you can receive the second one.
