Date set for state-run booster clinic at JCC
WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - The date for a state-run COVID-19 vaccine clinic has been nailed down.
We previously reported it could be Saturday or Sunday. Officials confirmed Thursday morning that it would be on Sunday, December 19.
It’s scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jefferson Community College gymnasium.
You do not need to sign up ahead of time.
All three vaccines -- Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson -- will be offered for those eligible to get a booster. Anyone looking to get their first or second dose of the vaccine can also go to this clinic.
“Just like testing relieved some of the pressure on the urgent cares and the emergency room, we are hoping a mass booster clinic like this will relieve some of the pressure in the pharmacies,” Jefferson County Legislature chair Scott Gray said.
Gray says a spike in cases after thanksgiving also fueled this decision. He says they want to mitigate as much spread as they can before Christmas.
