Walk-In Covid-19 Pediatric Vaccination Clinic
Wednesday, June 29, 2022
The Henry & Stark County Health Department and Henry County Office of Emergency Management announce they are holding a special “Pop-Up” Pediatric Moderna Covid Vaccination Clinic from 10:00am-3:00pm on Wednesday, June 29th at the Kewanee First Choice Healthcare location at 110 N. Burr Blvd. The clinic is for all area children 6 mos. - 5 years of age. This is a “Walk-In” Clinic and no appointments are necessary while supplies last.
On June 18, 2022 the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) approved Covid-19 vaccination for young children who are at least 6 months old. Scientific evidence has shown that the children who received the COVID-19 vaccines during testing developed high levels of virus-fighting antibodies expected to protect them against coronavirus. Vaccines continue to be effective at preventing severe illness and hospitalization, including in children with and without underlying medical conditions.
Parents and caregivers can now get their children 6 months through 5 years of age vaccinated with either the Moderna (2-Shot Series) or Pfizer (3-Shot Series) vaccines to better protect them from Covid-19. All children, including children who have already had Covid-19, should get vaccinated.
The Health Department & First Choice Healthcare’s Covid-19 vaccination services offer both the Pfizer and Moderna Covid vaccines. The Department continues to offer Covid-19 MODERNA vaccinations for those 18 years and older; and PFIZER initial and booster vaccinations for those 5 years and older at Special “Walk-In” clinics and by appointment at the Health Department’s Kewanee First Choice Healthcare location, 110 N. Burr Blvd., Kewanee (309) 852-5272. In addition, many local pharmacies have these vaccinations by appointment as well.
