Appointments will only be available for individuals who are eligible for vaccination based on state guidelines.
The number of appointments available will depend on the amount of vaccine received from the state, and it may take several weeks to work through each phase of vaccination eligibility.
Vaccine supplies from the federal government are gradually increasing, but demand will likely continue to outweigh supply as we transition into Phase 1B+.
Vaccine supply in Montana is managed by the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, and is allocated directly to county health departments for distribution to their respective residents.
We appreciate your patience as we work to schedule individuals as quickly as possible.
We will continue to update our website with the most recent information available. (sclhealth.org/covidvaccine/)
