“We are so grateful to our business community for donating amazing prizes for our campaign," Teton Health Director, Jodie Pond said. "We want people to get back to the activities that they love while protecting their friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors by being vaccinated against COVID-19. We hope many in our community will get vaccinated and sign up for a chance to win great prizes.”
There are still many in the community who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 either due to age or a medical reason. Protect these individuals and consider signing up to receive a COVID-19 vaccine if you are able. For community members who have questions about the COVID-19 vaccines and would like to speak to one of our nurses please call our COVID hotline at 307-732-8628 or visit, www.tetoncountywy.gov/covidvax.
