PHD setting 650 COVID vaccine appointments weekly

Based on the current supply of vaccine, each week Panhandle Health District (PHD) will release approximately 650 total appointments for their Kootenai, Shoshone, and Benewah County vaccine clinics. Boundary and Bonner clinics are being scheduled by enrolled providers in those counties.

If you would like to schedule a vaccination appointment at one of PHD’s vaccine clinics, visit www.panhandlehealthdistrict.org/covid-19/vaccine and click the link to schedule an appointment at the clinic nearest you.

Appointments for PHD clinics will be released every Wednesday at 9 a.m. If you register for a vaccine appointment:

  • Be sure to confirm that you are eligible to receive the vaccine per Idaho’s Vaccine Phases
  • When you arrive for your vaccination appointment, bring your driver’s license and/or proof of employment if applicable, so PHD can verify your eligibility.

These vaccination clinics are in addition to multiple enrolled vaccine provider clinics happening in the District. For those without internet access or anyone having trouble navigating the online scheduling, please call PHD’s COVID-19 hotline for assistance, 877-415-5225.
