There will be a drive through vaccination clinic by Partnership Health Center in Frenchtown  on Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Communications and Development Administrator Eric Halverson provides details.

“This will be at Frenchtown Pond State Park and we're looking forward to vaccinating 280 Partnership Health Center Phase 1 B eligible patients from that area,” said Halverson. “This will be the second drive thru clinic we've hosted and we're really excited to partner with the Missoula County COVID-19 vaccination team, just like we did in Seeley Lake on February eighth.”

Halverson was careful to emphasize that the participants in the clinic are already being contacted.

“We are reaching out to folks to schedule,” he said. “So, as we've mentioned before we politely ask that folks don't contact us. We're reaching out and scheduling. So if you have an appointment, you'll know. So thank you for bringing that up. That's a really important piece of information.”

Halverson detailed the information that each participant must bring along.

“When we reach out to schedule we'll let them know where they can pick up their packets ahead of time which provides a little bit of safety information and one pink sheet that they'll fill out before they show up,” he said. “If they can come with clothing that is easy to expose one or the other arm for the shots that go in. They get their shot and move on to the 15 minute holding area. So we can just watch them just like we did out in Seeley Lake and just as they do and all the other vaccination clinics here in town and then they're on their way.”

Halverson was asked if the participant should bring someone to drive in case there might be a reaction to the vaccine.

“We had folks out in Seeley that, honestly came in pairs,” he said.  “Say a husband and wife were both contacted and scheduled an appointment and we had several occasions where we vaccinated both the driver and the passenger and everything worked out just fine. So I think if folks want to take that added measure, that's just fine, but we haven't seen any issues pop up with folks driving and getting the vaccine that day.”

The Partnership Health Center Drive-Through Clinic will be Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
