GREENLEE COUNTY – The Greenlee County Health Department and Gila Health Resources are continuing their partnership in vaccinating Greenlee County residents, according to state and local guidelines. As regular allotments of vaccine arrive in Greenlee County, the Health Department is directing those vaccines to be administered in a timely manner at three locations in the county and Gila Health continues to assist in this effort.

Currently, Greenlee County is vaccinating residents in Phase 1B, which consists of adults 65 and older and frontline, essential services/critical industry workers. However, beginning Jan. 26, the health department is allowing all residents of Greenlee County who are 18 years and older to register online to be vaccinated.

Even though not all registered individuals 18 and older will immediately be eligible to receive the vaccine, by registering now all adults can indicate their desire to be vaccinated once sufficient supply is available in the county.

To be registered click here and complete your online registration where you will be asked your name, date of birth, address, occupation, medical conditions (if any), and your preferred vaccination site. After registering online, you will be contacted by phone when the vaccine is available. If you have any questions, please email COVIDVaccineQuestions@gilahealth.com or call 928-865-7512.

In order to register to be vaccinated, an individual must:

*Be 18 years or older.

*Be a Greenlee County resident or work in the county as a frontline/essential worker.

*Present a driver’s license (or proof of age and address) at the time of vaccination.
