U-B Health Dept. to give first round of vaccines Thursday morning

To the Citizens of Upshur County,

The Upshur-Buckhannon Health Department has been taking names for the vaccines that will be available to the age group of 80 and over.

We will begin giving those vaccines tomorrow, Jan. 07, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. We have a process that we will be following. Please remain in your vehicle until Health Department Staff speak with you. There will be additional parking available at the Upshur County Senior Center. We do NOT have the vaccine on site currently. This is by APPOINTMENT ONLY.

We must be able to work this way due to honoring guidelines.

You will be called, and your name put with an appointment time. If you have previously called, we will be calling you with an appointment time.

We must work in a specified time frame; we are busy contacting you and scheduling these appointments.

If our vaccine runs out, any remaining names will be contacted, and you will be placed on the list for the next shipment of vaccines.

We do not know dates of vaccine delivery, until just a few hours prior. We are doing our best to get this vaccine out to our senior population.

Please work with us, your cooperation is appreciated.

Stay Safe,

Sue McKisic, RN
