COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that originated in China in late 2019 and has since spread throughout the world. The disease can have mild to severe symptoms, including fever, cough, and trouble breathing. It can also be fatal, especially among people age 65 and older and people with serious, existing health problems, like heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease.
We have established the Lewis and Clark County COVID-19 Hotline at toll free 833-VAXXC19 (833-829-9219). In addition to helping with appointments, our staff can provide information on second dose clinics, update appointment information and provide guidance on some frequently asked questions with regard to COVID-19. The hotline is open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where can I get vaccinated?
LCPH and our partners have switched to smaller, targeted mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics, many of which do not require appointments. We’re utilizing a new COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Location tool. This map is easy to use, works on any computer, tablet or smartphone and requires no installed software. The map features an easy-to-navigate menu highlighting our mobile pop up clinics, health centers, pharmacies, testing locations, and also will allow residents to request a mobile clinic location to help bring vaccine to their employer, congregation or neighborhood.
If You Think You Have COVID-19
Symptoms of COVID-19 include a fever over 100 degrees F, cough, and difficulty breathing. If you have mild symptoms, stay home if possible and contact your medical provider by phone for guidance. Your provider will make sure you don’t expose others in the office or hospital setting. He or she will also work with public health professionals to determine if you need to be tested.
If you have severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, seek care immediately. Let the 9-1-1 dispatcher know that you might have COVID-19. Older patients and people who have underlying medical conditions or compromised immune systems should contact their physician early in the course of even mild illness.
