The clinic will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is an opportunity to provide vaccines for those who have not been vaccinated or for those who need second and third doses, according to a spokesperson for Highlands Health.
Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available. Pediatric doses of the Pfizer vaccine will also be available.
“Generally, the first and second Moderna doses are a higher dose, and its booster is offered 6 months after the second injection and at a decreased amount,” Dr. Opila, Medical Director of Highlands Health said. “The Pfizer vaccine doses remain the same after the second injection with boosters also offered 6 months after the initial shot. Those immunocompromised or high-risk individuals may receive different doses based on their specific circumstances and may be eligible for boosters sooner than 6 months.”
Anyone interested in receiving the vaccine can pre-register for the event online. Anyone with mobility issues should drive to the front of the building and a vaccine will be brought to their vehicle.
