COVID-19 BOOSTER ALLOCATIONS FOR STILLWATER COUNTY- September 26, 2022 – Columbus, Montana. Stillwater Billings Clinic announced this morning, that Covid Booster allocations have not yet been received from the State.

“It is unknown at this time, when Stillwater Billings Clinic will receive COVID booster vaccine,” says Dr. Cody White, Stillwater County Public Health Medical Director. “Independent and chain pharmacies have availability to order supplies directly from Centers for Disease Control (CDC), where we do not.”

Stillwater Billings Clinic Public Health Nurse, Tina Robinson, RN, has been working with the State of Montana Department of Health & Human Services, to obtain adequate supply of the Covid booster vaccine and will continue to update and inform when those allocations will arrive.

“We want to ensure our residents that we are doing everything we can to obtain Covid booster vaccine as quickly as possible,” says Dr. Cody White.

Individuals who have not yet received their 1st or 2nd dose of COVID-19 vaccinations, may still do so during the Vaccination Clinics, at SBC, held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., each Friday. Patients can call ahead to schedule their 1st or 2nd dose, by calling 406-322-1000.

Please continue to take all appropriate protective and preventative measures if you are feeling well or have been recently exposed. If you have COVID-19 related questions, you may contact Public Health at 406-322-1080.

The Friday OCTOBER 29th COVID Vaccination clinic at Stillwater Billings Clinic will be cancelled due to short supply and increased demand last week!  This is only for the COVID vaccine clinic, flu shots can still be received by appointment on 10/29 at Stillwater Billings Clinic.

On Friday NOVEMBER 5th, COVID Vaccination clinic will be held at the Little Metra here in Columbus from 9am – 2 pm.  Vaccines will be given for 1st and 2nd doses, as well as booster shots.  The vaccines we carry are Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.  The CDC has approved the boosters to be interchangeable.  That means if you received a Pfizer 1st and 2nd dose, you can receive a Moderna 3rd dose.  The vaccine we carry is for ages 18 and older.  We ask that all participants receiving their booster shots please wear a short sleeve shirt so we may access the top of your shoulder, bring your insurance card, and bring your vaccination card so that may be updated.  We will do as many boosters as possible until we run out of vaccines.  No appointments are needed.  Please be advised that there may be a waiting time to get through the line, however, we will work to move as quickly as possible to get everyone in and out in a timely manner. 


The Stillwater County Health Nurse reminds parents that each school has its own board that directs and governs what school requirements are going to be for mask-wearing.

Public Health Message: Covid-19 Vaccine Distribution

Stillwater County will be providing COVID vaccines to residents within the County per the Governor’s phased vaccine distribution plan.  Currently, we are entering Phase 1 b of the Governors plan.  Due to limited supply of vaccine, we have created a waiting list for those interested in the vaccine.  If you would like to be added to the list for the COVID vaccine, please call Public Health at 406-322-1070.  Due to high call volumes, please leave a detailed message with your first and last name (spell them out as well), your date of birth, your phone number.  You will be placed on the waiting list.  Once vaccine arrives, you will be called for your vaccine.  Again, very limited amounts of the vaccine have arrived in Stillwater County and we will work diligently to get everyone vaccinated as soon as possible.  Again, please call 322-1070 to get placed on the waiting list- Ntasha Sailer, RN Lead Local Public Health Official
