The Bay County Health Department (BCHD) is pleased to announce that healthcare and other critical infrastructure workers who live or work in Bay County may register to receive the COVID-19
vaccine by completing the survey linked here.
Registering online is easy and secure. The registration survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and must be completed in a single session. Workers completing the survey will receive an email notification for an appointment when the vaccine will be administered to them. Vaccination will occur at Bay County clinics or other partnered medical facilities. The length of wait between completing the registration survey, receiving an appointment email, and getting the vaccine will depend on BCHD’s supply of vaccine, the local demand for vaccine, and each worker’s
prioritization relative to others seeking the vaccine.
The registration survey serves multiple purposes:
“The online registration process gives us the opportunity to protect the health of our community by getting the right people the vaccination at the right time,” said Joel Strasz, Public Health Officer at the Bay County Health Department. “The newly authorized COVID-19 vaccines leverage the latest scientific advances and provide public health with powerful tools for reducing infections and restoring the normal functioning of our communities. We encourage all health care and critical infrastructure workers do their part—get registered and get vaccinated.”
The arrival of COVID-19 vaccines will help us protect our communities. Bay County’s goal is to have 70% of its residents vaccinated by July 4th.
BCHD has a supply of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Persons who live or work in Bay County (or elsewhere, as resources allow) may obtain the COVID-19 vaccine from BCHD. BCHD is currently building a coalition of providers to administer vaccine in the community. Some people will have access to the vaccine from other local sources:
While the recent surge of positive cases has lessened to some extent it is still vital that everyone throughout our community take all the actions necessary to stop the spread of COVID-19.
