  • Why are the numbers different on this page than the numbers on the state dashboard?

    Vaccines have been allocated to Montana in different ways. The state allocation through DPHHS is distributed to enrolled vaccination providers. The federal government has contracted CVS and Walgreens to offer on-site COVID-19 vaccinations to long term care and assisted living facilities. During the Phase 1A rollout for healthcare workers and LTC/ASFs employers and contracted agencies provided a portion of the vaccinations for all counties. In addition the VA and Indian Health Services were provided vaccine allocations from either state or federal sources. Vaccine distribution and administration is a complicated process. Montana ranks as one of the top 10 vaccine administrators in the nation. MT DPHHS’s Immunization Program has done a remarkable job of providing vaccine, guidance and supervision of a process that is new and constantly changing.

Coping with stress in a positive way helps yourself, your family and your community. Even if you don't feel stressed yourself, helping others that do builds strong and resilient communities.
