Get your vaccine in Freestone Co.

Freestone county residents are now able to make an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at Brookshire Brothers Pharmacy in Fairfield, as long as they fall into one of four categories: a health care worker involved in direct patient care, a resident of a nursing home or other long-term care facility, a person over the age of 65, or an adult with a chronic medical condition.

Persons in the first two categories listed above receive first priority, followed by those in the second two groups. Brookshire Brothers is following the state’s priority grouping system. Wait times may vary, depending on demand and the size of first-priority groups.

“Our pharmacists are diligently working to handle the enormous demands from people wanting to receive the COVID-19 vaccination,” said Laura Edmundson, Brookshire Brothers’ Director of Clinical Pharmacy Programs. “We are currently seeking out members of the healthcare worker population and have begun scheduling appointments for those who are at the highest risk for severe illness from COVID-19. The transition between the groups will likely vary between Brookshire Brothers locations, depending on the demand and need within each community.”
