CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russel Redding, was joined by other state officials to remind the Commonwealth of the free vaccine clinic hosted by the Department of Health at the Ag Progress Days in State College.

The vaccine clinic is located between the College Building and the Department of Agriculture building on West 10th Street.

“From our rural plains to our city spaces, this is a layer of protection that will benefit you, your family, your community, and this commonwealth,” Redding said.

At Ag Progress Days, individuals will be able to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. A small inventory of Moderna will also be available but only for those who may have missed their second shot of the two-shot series.
