With a lifted mask mandate and the city coming back to life under the hot summer sun, it’s easy to assume the pandemic is nearing an end.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services reported more than 1.7 million administered COVID-19 vaccine doses, along with decreasing positive test percentages. But less than half of Nebraska and Douglas County’s population is fully vaccinated, stymying a return to pre-pandemic normalcy.

In order to increase accessibility, the Douglas County Health Department is offering free COVID-19 vaccinations at various locations, from Hy-Vee pharmacies to public schools. Check out the DCHD Facebook page or visit www.douglascountyhealth.com for more information.
