Gov. Gianforte announced Tuesday the creation of vaccine distribution phase “1B+,” which is set to include those age 60 and over and those with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis and liver disease. 

Those in 1B+ will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations beginning March 8.

Those included in Phase 1B+ will be able to get on Livingston HealthCare’s vaccine waiting list March 8, according to the hospital’s website.

“Livingston HealthCare’s waiting list will update on March 8 to remain in line with the state’s guidance for vaccine distribution,” the website stated.

The waiting list sign-up can be found here: https://www.livingstonhealthcare.org/Patients-Visitors/Coronavirus-COVID....

According to the site, Park County’s vaccine supply remains significantly lower than the phase 1B population. The 1B waiting list is capped at 2,000 people, according to the site.

The Park County Health Department is focusing on those age 70 and up for vaccinations right now, as well as people of color, Health Department Director Alex Baukus said Tuesday.

Baukus said Park County receives 300-400 Moderna first doses each week, and starting this week about 100 Johnson and Johnson vaccines were added.

Those doses are split among the Health Department, Livingston HealthCare, Osco Pharmacy at Albertsons, Western Drug, Community Health Partners and the Medcor clinic at Mammoth.
