CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Casper-Natrona County Health Department COVID-19 vaccine clinic in the old Macy’s location is now accepting walk-ins. They had 1,500 appointments available, but they weren’t getting filled.

“They don’t have to schedule it so if it works better for them to walk in we have that now,” said Hailey Bloom, CNCHD public information officer. They are pausing their volunteer efforts for the time being.

“We aren’t seeing the same numbers we did in the beginning so it doesn’t make sense to have them. We will monitor that and scale up or down,” Bloom said.

Vaccine clinics are now only at the COVID-19 vaccine center at the Eastridge Mall. They used to also be at the CNCHD downtown location. “It got confusing when we were operating clinics out of both locations. You had to click on a link to see which location you needed to go to,” Bloom said.

At the CVC, they completed 798 shots in one day. This clinic is a light at the end of the tunnel. “We are really happy to be at this point. It seemed so out of reach many months ago and it’s been awesome to get people in here,” Bloom said.

CNCHD hopes to get everyone a vaccine who wants one by the summer. Click here for the Casper VS COVID website.
