Interested in a COVID-19 Booster or Third Dose? Let Us Know.
In an effort to gauge community response, Washington County is asking residents to complete a Survey Regarding COVID-19 Boosters and Third Doses.
“We need to get a general indication of how many folks will get a third dose or booster and where they want to go to receive that dose,” said Washington County Mayor Joe Grandy.
The survey is available at the top of the County’s web site, www.washingtoncountytn.org, and is comprised of four questions:
- Do you want a third or booster dose?
- How would you prefer to go to receive that dose (drive thru or inside a traditional clinic setting)?
- Your age
- Your county of residence
“This is a personal choice, and therefore we are not asking for any specifics. We simply want to know a rough number so our folks can plan ahead regarding logistics and staffing,” Grandy said.
Last December, the county’s Emergency Management Agency and Health Department administered first and second doses of the vaccine through a drive thru Point of Distribution (POD) at Freedom Hall in Johnson City. With a variety of other places for residents to receive third and booster doses, a large site may not be necessary.
“I encourage everyone who wants a third dose to give us a heads ups so we can make sure resources are in place to smoothly administer vaccine to those who want it,” Grandy said.
More information regarding dates for additional dose distribution will be available on the Washington County website, www.washingtoncountytn.org. Those wanting first or second doses can visit www.covid19.tn.gov to find vaccine availability and appointments in our region.
