Fun Fact Image 2

 BUNDLE UP! Punxsutawney Phil says 6 more weeks of winter.

The groundhog really can predict the end of winter.

Just not with his shadow. Because groundhogs hibernate every winter, the fact that he'd bother to leave his hideaway is a natural sign of spring to come! The furry critter is also easy to find — groundhogs live in the majority of central and eastern U.S., plaguing gardeners everywhere.

A weekly Fun Fact will be posted to the website. Tune in every week to learn something new! If you have a fact you would like to submit, send it to

COVID-19 vaccination appointments for age 75 and above (year of birth in 1946 or before) will be available for scheduling on Thursday, February 4. The link will be available on this web page no later than 9:00am.

We encourage you to use the online scheduling system if possible. You can ask a friend or relative to assist you and can provide their email. If you are requesting 2 appointments together, please use separate email addresses because we have to limit appointments to one email address each. If you have trouble, you can call the DCHD information line at (402) 444-3400.
We will be watching the demand closely and open up younger groups as soon as possible. If we get more vaccine, we will be able to open up appointments sooner. All age-based (65+) appointments will be made through the Douglas County Health Department link above.


Appointments for people who are under 65 (year of birth 1957 or later) will be made through the Nebraska vaccination system VACCINATE.NE.GOV. People in this group will need to re-register at that link. We apologize that you will have to re-register but the state system will need more information from you in order to determine your priority. You will be asked to to answer questions about your medical conditions.

If you are unable to find a friend or relative to help and still need assistance scheduling an appointment, you can call the DCHD COVID-19 Information Line at 402-444-3400.

If you live in a senior/independent living facility or are a patient of OneWorld Community Health Center, Charles Drew Health Center, or Fred LeRoy Health Center, vaccinations will be available at these facilities.

Vaccination Information

Planning has begun for those populations listed in Phase 1B. If you are aged 65 or older and live in Sarpy or Cass County, the Health Department is offering a pre-registration process for receiving additional information regarding COVID-19 vaccine availability.  This survey does not register you for a vaccine; it is a mechanism for you to be contacted once you are eligible to receive the vaccine. Nebraska is working to set up a Vaccine Registration and Administration System by late January.
