COVID-19 Testing/Vaccine Update (3/8/22):
Due to the drastic decrease in demand for COVID-19 testing and vaccines, the Christian County Health Department is making changes to our COVID-19 testing and vaccine schedules. Starting Monday, March 14, 2022, CCHD’s drive-thru COVID-19 test site will be closed. CCHD will continue to work with community partners to monitor COVID-19 cases and will re-evaluate opening the test site as necessary.
Starting next week, COVID-19 vaccines will now be available at CCHD on Wednesdays for children ages 5-11 and on Thursdays for ages 12+. COVID-19 vaccines are available to walk-in appointments from 7:45 AM – 4:00 PM. Parent or guardian must be present for pediatric vaccines. All COVID-19 vaccines are now given on a walk-in basis – no appointment is needed. You WILL NOT be charged any out of pocket expense for the vaccine.
CCHD will continue to focus on data entry and reporting COVID-19 cases while remaining available to answer questions as needed and continuing to provide the essential services of public health. We will continue to push our pertinent information and guidance, communicate with schools and local businesses, answer questions, and serve as a liaison to the community. If you have questions about COVID-19, visit www.christiancountyhd.com/covid-19, email us at email@example.com, or call us at (270) 887-4160.
We strongly encourage those of you in the community who have not yet been vaccinated to please consider getting your COVID-19 vaccine. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the health department. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
