MISSOULA — The Missoula City-County Health Department will host a public vaccination clinic on Tuesday, February 23, at the former Lucky’s Market in the Southgate Mall.

Approximately 300 first-dose COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine appointments will be available. Appointments will open online at 1 p.m. Monday, February 22. The link to make appointments will be available on the Vaccine Information page at covid19.missoula.co.

People without internet access or who are not proficient online can call 406-258-INFO (4636), option 3, to schedule an appointment over the phone starting at 1 p.m. on Monday, February 22.

Organizers request that people who have the ability to schedule online make an appointment on the website instead of calling so the call center can help those most in need of assistance.

Appointments are only available to Missoula County residents who fall into Phase 1b, Tier 1. This includes those ages 70 and older, American Indians ages 16 and older, and people of color ages 16 and older. Phase 1a patients will continue to be eligible.

Appointments are non-transferable and individuals can only book one appointment per person. This clinic will not take walk-ups, and appointments are mandatory. Patients who book appointments for these clinics are also committing to a second dose appointment exactly 21 days from the date of their first dose at the same time as their first appointment.

Patients must make sure they are free for that second dose appointment before booking their first dose. An email address is required to book an appointment online. Those who are successful in booking an appointment online will receive a confirmation email within one hour of booking their appointment. That email will confirm the time, date, location and materials they must bring to their appointment.
