Wineland said the site will be imperative in making sure people have access to flu vaccinations. The vaccination station is also a requirement to move into the protect-our-neighbor phase of reopening, Wineland said. 

“We know that when flu season is going to overlap with COVID, that’s going to create capacity issues for our health care system,” she said. “The symptoms are very similar.”

The county is partnering with a number of community organizations like the Family & Intercultural Resource Center, ski areas, Centura Health, Ebert Family Clinic, Swan Mountain Women’s Center, the Summit Community Care Clinic and more to bring the site together, Wineland said. 

“The hope is that other entities could be using this drive-thru spot, not just public health, for distributing the vaccine,” she said. “So it’s a much wider group of people who can distribute the vaccine safely to their patient populations.”
