COVID-19 Youth Vaccination Survey

Pershing County is assisting Pershing County Health Officials in determining the number of youth (ages 12-17) who may be interested in being vaccinated for COVID-19. Parents who fill out this survey will help local health officials secure the correct number of vaccines and possibly organize a drive-through vaccination event(s) to help facilitate protection in our community. 

Please complete the Interest Survey for Pershing County COVID Vaccine (Ages 12-17)

Thank you for taking the time to assist us with these endeavors.
