DSU Football Stadium serves as MSDH COVID-19 Vaccination Site

Bolivar County, City of Cleveland, and Delta State University partner with MSDH to bring COVID‐19 vaccination site to local community.

Thanks to a partnership among the Bolivar County Board of Supervisors,

the Bolivar County Emergency Management Agency, the City of Cleveland, Delta State

University (DSU) and the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH), residents of Bolivar

County will no longer have to drive two hours roundtrip to receive the COVID‐19 vaccine.

Beginning Feb. 23, the southwest parking lot of Delta State’s Horace McCool Stadium will

transform from a place where Statesmen fans gather on game day to a drive‐through COVID‐19

vaccine distribution site, as part of MSDH’s ongoing efforts across the state.

Bolivar County’s vaccination site, located on Delta State’s campus, will operate from 9 a.m. to 4

p.m. on Tuesday and Friday, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 23.

All appointments for vaccinations at the Bolivar County site must be made through MSDH’s

vaccine appointment system and will be based on the eligibility guidelines established by the

agency. Appointments cannot be made with city, county or university officials.

To make an appointment, visit covidvaccine.umc.edu or call 877‐978‐6453.

The Bolivar County Council on Aging, Inc. will provide transportation for those who have limited

or no means of transportation. Citizens may contact the Bolivar County Council on Aging

Dispatcher Daryeal Lewis or Mobility Manager Doris Green at (662) 846‐6161 to schedule

transportation to the vaccination site. Proof of appointment must be presented at the time of

pickup.
