UPDATE on January 11, 2021 – The Greene County Department of Public Health thanks you for your interest in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Unfortunately, we are currently booked to capacity for the next 2 weeks for COVID-19 vaccination appointments.

If you were previously instructed to wait 2-3 weeks to call back for an appointment please call The Greene County Department of Public Health back to be placed on the waitlist.
We thank you for your patience with us at this time as we continuously work to improve this process and provide the vaccine to those who are currently eligible according to the state’s vaccination plan.
