GREAT FALLS — Scores of people were vaccinated against COVID-19 on Monday thanks to a partnership between Alluvion Health and the Salvation Army in Great Falls.

The vaccine clinic was held at the Salvation Army Office at 1000 17th Avenue South on Monday.

Alluvion had 200 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine available and within the first two and a half hours had used 140.

Alluvion Clinical Manager Trixie Smith estimated there were about 70 people waiting in line when the clinic opened. "The show that we had, the show of force when they were lined up to get their vaccine and waiting, I think that kind of tells us in itself that they were very excited to get the vaccine,” Smith said.

Whether another vaccine clinic will be held at the Salvation Army had not been determined Monday.
