Public Health shares January vaccine clinic schedule

Henry County Public Health is planning a series of walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinics in January. Clinics will be held at the Public Health office on Wednesdays from 1-3:30pm, Thursdays from 9am-3:30pm, and on Thursday January 20th from 9am-5:30pm. Moderna, Pfizer, and J&J vaccines will be available for anyone age 5 and older. Booster shots have now been approved for anyone age 12 and older if it has been at least 6 months since your 2nd shot of Moderna, at least 5 months since your 2nd shot of Pfizer, or at least 2 months since your J&J shot.

The emergence of the Omicron variant underscores the importance of vaccination, boosters, and preventive efforts to protect against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines continue to be highly effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death. CDC recommendations on booster doses are based on the latest data, which show that booster doses significantly increase protection from the Omicron variant, with the goal of ensuring that people have optimal protection against COVID-19 infection, severe illness, and death.

Flu shots will also be given during the January clinic times for $35 unless they can bill your insurance. Public Health is located at 106 N. Jackson St. in Mt. Pleasant. Masks are encouraged, they ask that you limit additional family members not receiving vaccines, and please stay home if you or your child are sick.
