Vaccine Updates

If you have received your first vaccine with Prosser Memorial Health at the hospital or Housel Middle School, you will be called or emailed 5-7 days prior to your second dose due date.

If you received your first vaccine at the Benton Franklin Fairgrounds you will start receiving email invites to schedule your 2nd dose next week. You do not need to contact Prosser Memorial Health to request a 2nd dose appointment.

State allocations cut to hospital clinics are resulting in cancellations of vaccination clinic appointments. Learn More

PLEASE READ:

People who currently have COVID-19 should wait to get vaccinated until they feel better and their isolation period is finished, if possible.

People who were recently exposed to COVID-19 should also wait to get the vaccine until after their quarantine period, if they can safely quarantine away from other people. If there is a high risk they could infect others, they may be vaccinated during their quarantine period to prevent spreading the disease.
