“Unified Health Command partners continue to strongly encourage everyone 16 years and older to get vaccinated against COVID-19 for their own health and the health of their loved ones,” said John Felton, CEO and president of RiverStone Health. “We will work with other providers and community partners to reach out with vaccine clinics that are convenient to Yellowstone County residents.”
Businesses, churches and organizations can host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic by calling RiverStone Health at (406)651-6410 and leave a message or send an email to CovidOutreach@riverstonehealth.org. Calls and e-mails will be returned within two business days. UHC says they would like to have a minimum of 20 people to schedule an outreach
