People 55 to 64 who have one of 13 “at risk” medical conditions can schedule an appointment through the online portal when the slots open. In order to secure a slot, residents between ages 55 and 64 will also need to have a signed doctor’s note stating they have one of the conditions.
Appointments will be available online on Wednesday, and administration will also begin at Jackson vaccination sites.
To make sure you don’t miss your chance, Jackson recommends checking its social media accounts, including Twitter and Instagram Stories, for updates on vaccine appointment availability.
