State Health Officer Discusses Vaccine Eligibility

COVID-19 vaccines are available to the general public in every county in Wyoming. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter recently spoke with the State Health Officer about the vaccine.


In Wyoming, anyone 16-years of age or older is eligible for the Pfizer vaccine and anyone at least 18-years of age is eligible for both the Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccines. Wyoming State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist said there is a wealth of information online about the vaccine and where it is available locally.

Approximately 160,000 people in Wyoming have received their first dose of the vaccine and 120,000 have been fully vaccinated, which equates to about 20 percent of the state’s population. We’ll hear more about the vaccine from Dr. Harrist in future stories.
