Mobile COVID-19 vaccination, testing clinics made available
The Harrison County Health Dept. announced there will be two free COVID-19 testing and vaccination clinics Saturday.
From 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., the clinic will be at Unity Chapel United Methodist Church, located at 1760 Lost Creek Road NW south of Ramsey. It will then set up at South Central schools, located at 6675 Highway 11, Elizabeth, from 1 to 3:30 p.m.
No appointment is necessary at either location. However, registration can be completed in advance to save time. For a vaccine, visit OurShot.IN.gov; for a test, go to CoronaVirus.IN.gov.
Persons 18 and older may choose to receive either the single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) or Pfizer vaccine, which requires a second dose to be fully protected (an appointment for the second dose will be scheduled at the time of receiving the first dose).
Individuals age 12 to 17 can only receive the Pfizer vaccine. An adult must accompany children age 12 to 15 to the vaccine appointment. If the adult present is not the parent or guardian, consent must be submitted in advance. For those ages 16 and 17, it’s preferred they be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the vaccination site. In those cases where it’s not possible, the parent or guardian can provide written or verbal authorization.
For testing, both the rapid antigen and PCR tests will be available.
