“The CDC will meet today to discuss the details on Johnson & Johnson and Moderna boosters. The CDC Director will provide final approval which should occur within 24 hours after this meeting”, said Pamela Walker-Bauer, Health Commissioner, “We expect to be able to administer booster doses for all 3 COVID brands of vaccine at next week’s event.”
This CCHD clinic is supported by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, Emergency Management Agency, and Engineer’s Office along with Southern State Community College and community volunteers.
Seasonal flu shots are also available and can be given at the same time as any COVID vaccine. Please bring your medical card to your appointment.
Other Clinics: CCHD and our community volunteers will also provide COVID & Flu vaccinations in the following locations next week: Southern Ohio Educational Services Center, Your Father’s Kitchen, Clinton County Sheriff’s Office and Jail, and Wilmington College. These clinics are specific to those organizations and not open to the general public, with the exception of Your Father’s Kitchen where all are welcome beginning at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, October 26th. If you have questions about these clinics, please contact the administration of those organizations.
5-11 Year Old Pfizer Vaccine Update: The CCHD has placed our 1st order for Pfizer’s COVID vaccine for 5-11-year-olds. This initial supply will be limited but should increase each week thereafter. Administration of this vaccine may begin once approved by the CDC Director anticipated around November 3rd. The first clinic tentatively scheduled for this age group will occur at Wilmington City Schools on Friday afternoon, November 5th; a parent/guardian MUST be present with the child at the time of vaccination.
