This vaccine clinic is for individuals 75 years and older ONLY.

4. Bring your ID
5. Bring your insurance card (private, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)
6. If you do not have insurance, there’s is a $20 administration fee – bring $20.
7. Be prepared to stay on premises for an additional 15 minutes after the vaccination for monitoring.

As of now, 250 vaccines are available.  No appointment is needed for the drive thru clinic, and vaccines will be available at the drive-thru clinic while supply lasts.

There will be a registration area, a vaccine station area, and an area for monitoring once vaccine is administered.
