Mohave County health officials open vaccines to all adults
KINGMAN – The Mohave County Department of Public Health has announced that it will open vaccinations for everyone age 18 and older starting the morning of Friday, March 26.
Mohave County wrote in a news release that according to Public Health Director Denise Burley, “the tapering of demand in our county and the increased doses being allocated to us enable this transition to all adults in the county.”
The county has been allocated 10,000 Moderna doses and 1,200 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for next week. Providers working with the county are prepared for the transition, with Burley wanting residents to know that “we now have a sufficient amount of vaccine on hand, and appointments available in all communities. This is a great time to make an appointment as we get vaccinations to all in our county who want it.”
However, the county noted that due to the limited number of Johnson & Johnson doses, not all providers will receive that vaccine. Those interested in the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should check on availability when making an appointment. In most cases, those vaccines will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis.
