A $20,000 gift was made to the RiverStone Health Foundation to "incentivize vaccinations in Yellowstone County," and beginning this Thursday (5/13), $50 will be given to the first 400 residents who "get a dose."
Nearly 128,000 residents will be eligible to receive a vaccine, according to the press release, and appointments for this weeks vaccine clinic at MetraPark are now open for tomorrow, Thursday, and Friday.
No fans, physically distanced cheer squads, and emptying "spit valves" will be forbidden. Those are some of the restrictions that were outlined today in a plan for Yellowstone County High School and Middle School athletic events and activities.
RiverStone Health offers no-cost school immunizations every year. However, due to a backlog of COVID-19 case investigations, staff that normally would be handling school shots have been temporarily reassigned to help with COVID-19. The Immunization Clinic will resume Monday 7/27.
