RiverStone Health and St. Vincent Healthcare are planning a large, free community COVID-19 vaccination clinic next week at MetraPark for eligible individuals.

John Felton, CEO of RiverStone and Yellowstone County's health officer, said Monday at a news conference that organizers plan to release more information on how to make appointments later this week.

The clinic will be aimed at healthcare workers and first responders yet to be vaccinated and others in the 1B priority group. That group includes people over the age of 70, people ages 16 to 69 with high-risk health conditions, Native Americans and other persons of color.

Felton said public health officials are unsure how many doses are available, but they're continually lobbying for more.
