DeSoto County says it will not administer vaccines for those who had appointments scheduled Tuesday, Feb. 16 due to winter storms out of state.

According to the DeSoto County Facebook post, due to winter storms moving across the central and eastern portions of the United States, vaccine appointments originally scheduled Tuesday are in the process of being rescheduled to Tuesday, Feb. 23.

The County says the reason for the change is because vaccine shipments have been delayed due to weather in other parts of the country.

The County says, if you had an appointment for Tuesday, you will be contacted. Second dose appointments scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 18 will not be impacted.

For questions or concerns, the County’s Vaccine Cell Center will reopen 8 a.m. Tuesday The number to call is 863-491-5335.
