Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon announced Wednesday that all Wyoming residents 16 years of age and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Governor Gordon said all 23 counties have now entered phase two of the vaccine distribution plan and are scheduling appointments for the general population.
According to the Governor’s office, residents 16 and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, while adults 18 and older are eligible for the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. The vaccines are free and insurance is not required to receive a vaccine. More than 162,000 individuals in Wyoming have so far received at least their first dose of vaccine when state and special federal counts are combined.
