COVID vaccine available for those over 75 in Mississippi

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Those ages 75 and older in Mississippi are now eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine.

Officials said residents can get vaccinated at 18 high-volume drive-through sites and at private clinics throughout the state.

Appointments can be made for the clinics at https://covidvaccine.umc.edu. Those with additional questions can call the MSDH COVID-19 Hotline at 1-877-978-6453.

Private clinics that wish to start vaccinating patients have requested doses from the state Department of Health.

The Department of Health will release the names of the private clinics that will be vaccinating patients in the coming days.

Republican Gov. Tate Reeves said he aims to make those over 65 eligible for vaccinations next.
