COVID Clinic During Adverse Weather Events

Operations at the COVID vaccination clinic may be impacted by adverse weather events. Patients with scheduled vaccination appointments can be assured that they will not lose their opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine because of adverse weather conditions. Safety is a primary concern for patients and staff.  Contingency plans for such occurrences are:

Snow and Ice    

Vaccination clinics that happen to occur during a snow or ice storm will continue as scheduled. Patients unable to make their scheduled appointment will be rescheduled at a subsequent clinic. Those patients will be notified of their new appointment date and time.

If a substantial number of missed appointments occur, organizers may decide to hold a makeup clinic for the missed appointments.

If the Sheriff announces a Level 3 weather emergency or if an insufficient number of clinic personnel are able to work, then the entire clinic will be rescheduled.

Loss of Power

Clinics will be rescheduled if there is a loss of electrical power or utilities to the clinic building.

Announcements of appointment or clinic rescheduling will be made through broadcast and print media, the website, and social media.
