The Douglas County Health Department and its community partners will host four community clinics beginning in February in an unprecedented effort to provide Douglas County residents 80 years of age and older with the COVID-19 vaccine.
The four sites are being coordinated by Douglas County Health Department in partnership with Nebraska Medicine, CHI Health, Creighton University and Methodist Health System.
The locations and times for the clinics are:
- • Christ Community Church - 404 South 108th Street on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The clinics will provide vaccine from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days until further notice. This begins February 2.
- • CHI Immanuel Medical Center - 72nd Street and Sorensen Parkway from 9-5 on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning February 3 until further notice.
- • The Nebraska Medicine Testing and Vaccination Clinic at 144th and Millard Avenue on Thursdays from 9- 5 and Sundays from 9-3 until further notice beginning February 4.
- • Creighton University’s Rasmussen Center at 702 North 17th Street on Saturdays beginning February 6 from 9-5. This clinic will continue until further notice.
This is the beginning of Phase 1-B of the vaccination rollout and will provide the first dose of the vaccine for this group.
The Douglas County Health Department Vaccine Registration Line will go live on Friday January 29th at 9:00 a.m. It will not open early.
The reservations must be made through the DCHD’s Information Line at (402) 444-3400 beginning Friday at 9:00 a.m. for those who do not have computer access. The clinic locations will not take reservations.
Those who have registered with the DCHD vaccine notification system can expect to be contacted about the next step in this process. Please wait for further information on that next step.
These clinics are limited to Douglas County residents who are 80 years of age or older this year.
Future clinics will address residents over 65 years of age, a group that has suffered 82% of the COVID-19-related deaths in Douglas County.
In addition to the four community clinics, beginning on Monday, February 1, DCHD will provide vaccine on a limited basis at OneWorld Community Health Center in South Omaha, Charles Drew Health Center, and the Fred LeRoy Health Center.
Kohll’s Pharmacy will provide vaccinations to independent living and retirement communities, while the Nebraska Methodist College mobile diabetes unit will be serving vulnerable populations.
