OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Douglas County Health Department (DCHD) has received additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, so the department is expanding vaccinations to those individuals 65 years of age and older.

DCHD also is extending the hours of its Saturday clinic that is operated in cooperation with Creighton University at the Rasmussen Center to run from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. this weekend. The change begins this Saturday, February 20, and appointments now can be made online at

Simply go to the yellow box that says “COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment Sign-Up” and click on the link. That online registration option for people 65-plus will be available no later than 9 a.m. Friday. Those without computer access can call (402) 444-3400.

Anyone who currently has an appointment at any clinic in Douglas County is asked to keep that appointment.

Most existing appointment times are booked into early March. Additional clinics are being planned. Once those arrangements have been solidified, the Douglas County Health Department and its partners will share that information with the public. Individuals 65-and-older are welcome to set an appointment at a future clinic by going to the department’s website.
