  • Jackson Hospital is no longer accepting pre-registrations for vaccines. The hospital has met its quota and has asked people to check back for updates as more vaccines become available.
  • Baptist Hospital: The hospital is scheduling appointments for those who are eligible, which are people in Phase 1A, plus people ages 75 and older and first responders.
