The next group of people who are eligible to receive the vaccine are those that are 65 and older.  Butler County Health Care Center, Butler County Clinic, Witter Family Medicine and Four Corners Health Department have created a master list for this group.  If you signed up on the Four Corners vaccination website or have been a patient of the hospital, Butler County Clinic or Witter Family Medicine you are “on the list.”  You will receive a postcard within the next week that explains the vaccine process.

We plan to conduct vaccination clinics at Butler County Health Care Center as soon as we receive vaccine.  We are using age to prioritize who will receive the vaccine first, starting with the oldest people first.  There are more than 2,900 people over the age of 65 currently on our list.  We will contact you when it is time to schedule your vaccine.  We anticipate that it will take several weeks before we have enough vaccine for everyone.  If you know of someone that is 65 or older and are residents of Butler County, that don’t receive the postcard, please encourage them to visit the Four Corners Health Department registration link HERE We also encourage you to check the Butler County Health Care Center Facebook page and website for regular updates regarding the vaccine rollout in Butler County.
