COVID-19 Vaccine Information
As of May 6, Livingston HealthCare is happy to share
over 4,500 first and second COVID vaccine doses combined have been administered to
our staff and community members,
93% of our staff are fully vaccinated and
2,000 people in Park County are fully vaccinated!
Over the past 4 months, we have called, scheduled and vaccinated over 4,100
people that have signed-up on our COVID vaccine list. This has been possible
due to the amazing nurses and staff that have worked tirelessly to provide
the vaccine to our community members.
Livingston HealthCare has transitioned the administering of the COVID vaccine
into our regular practice. Patients 12 and older who have a regularly-scheduled
appointment in any care area have the opportunity to receive the vaccine
while they are here. You may also call 406.222.3541 to schedule an appointment
to receive the vaccine.

How to receive the COVID vaccine:
- Call 406.222.3541 to schedule your appointment
- Ask your provider during your regularly-scheduled appointment
Notice regarding the COVID vaccine cost:
The COVID vaccine is free of charge, however a small administration charge
is associated. Livingston HealthCare will submit the charge to your insurance,
and you can expect to receive a statement stating “insurance pending”
until insurance processes the claim. If you are registered with no insurance
coverage, you may expect to receive billing statements while we are verifying
and confirming any insurance coverages, however at no point will any patient be responsible to pay any charges associated
with the COVID vaccine. If you have questions, call 823-6414.
