For Immediate Release
June 11, 2021, Jackson, WY – The Teton County Health Department now has a mobile COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, called Vaxi Taxi, that will host pop-up vaccination clinics around the community. The Health Department would like to thank START bus for allowing us to use a bus that is currently out of rotation for our mobile clinics. The START bus allows our vaccination team to easily go to many locations in our community to set up pop-up clinics where people can come and receive either their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
In an effort to go to more locations in our community the Vaxi Taxi will have its first set of stops next week. For more information and pop-up clinic hours please visit, www.tetoncountywy.gov/vaxitaxi.
The current schedule for the Vaxi Taxi is,
Monday, June 14, 2021 we will be North of Jackson. Stops include Kelly Elementary School, Moran Elementary School, Grand Teton National Park Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose, and the Jackson Hole Airport.
Tuesday, June 15, 2021 we will be in the Wilson and Alta area. Stops include 3 Creek, Aspens Market, Grand Targhee, Alta Library, and Teton Gravity Research (TGR).

Community members should look for a bus with Teton County Health Department signage. No appointments are needed at these pop-up clinics. Individuals who need first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are welcome to attend. The pop-up clinics will be offering the Moderna and the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is a two-dose vaccine and the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is a one-dose vaccine. Both of these COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for emergency use authorization in individuals 18 and older.
