Parents and guardians are required to accompany the child to their vaccine appointment. If you are scheduling multiple children for vaccine appointments, each child needs their own appointment time. Second and third doses will be booked at your child’s first dose appointment. Walk-in appointments for this age group cannot be accommodated.
If you need assistance with booking an appointment, please call our COVID-19 hotline at 307-732-8628 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments for this newly eligible age group may be in high demand, so the health department thanks you for your patience and flexibility while they work to accommodate everyone.
If you need to cancel your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, you can do so by calling the COVID-19 hotline or by going to www.tetoncountywy.gov/covidvax and clicking the ‘Need to Cancel your COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment’ button. This will allow appointment times to become available for other parents wanting to vaccinate their children instead of going unused.
