Here for Our Communities
Working together, we can end this pandemic. Vaccinations are one of the most important tools to help end the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you are looking for vaccine opportunities, please visit Panhandle Health District, visit panhandlehealthdistrict.org/covid-19/vaccine or call their COVID-19 hotline at (877) 415-5225. Vaccines will be administered to groups as outlined in the state’s prioritization schedule.
March 24, 2021 – Kootenai Health COVID-19 Vaccination Update
Kootenai Health has been immensely proud to be part of the COVID-19 vaccination project.
In just three months, Kootenai Health has successfully administered more than 20,804 shots in arms, amounting to 11,657 persons fully vaccinated in our region.
This collective community effort is a monumental achievement that should be recognized and celebrated. We are incredibly proud to have contributed to this effort.
Thankfully, vaccine supply is increasing rapidly and more and more locations, including common retailers like Walgreens and Walmart, are now equipped with the resources and staff to be able to administer this essential vaccine for our community.
As more vaccine and locations have become available to the community as a whole, Kootenai Health will be transitioning away from our mass-vaccination clinic as of March 24 (second doses will continue until April 14) and will be resuming some hospital operations that have been paused while completing this work.
Thank you for your unwavering support of our health care heroes during this challenging year.

We honor and thank each of our health care heroes for what they contribute to our community and we are inspired by their strength.
Thank you to all who continue to serve our community in its time of need. Together, we look forward to a brighter tomorrow.
