HAMILTON — Ravalli County Public Health is providing an update on the COVID-19 vaccination rollout efforts in the Bitterroot.

Health Director Tiffany Webber says that there is no word on when vaccines will be available in the county.

"At this time, we have not received any information or projections of future quantities of vaccine or dates that it may be received by providers in Ravalli County,” she stated in a news release.

Webber also noted that due to changing guidelines the department is currently not able to offer appointment times or begin a vaccination waitlist.

"Contrary to some rumors that have been circulating- Public Health is not offering or maintaining a ‘waiting list’ for the vaccine,” Webber said.

People are being asked not to call or email Ravalli County Public Health about the vaccine at this time and is urging patience with the process.

“We are committed to this process until every Ravalli County resident who wants the vaccine is able to receive it,” Webber said on Friday.
