KENOSHA – A mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 9, from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the ELCA Outreach Center, 1225 25th Ave., Kenosha.
Those who participate will receive a $25 Visa gift card, while supplies last, as announced by Kenosha County Public Health in a news release.
The clinic will offer both 1st and 2nd doses for those ages 5 and older. Booster doses will be available for those ages 12 and older. (A parent/guardian must accompany those under 18.)
Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and the newly FDA fully-approved Moderna vaccines will all be available. (Pfizer is currently the only vaccine approved for those younger than 18.)
These mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics are made possible by Kenosha County Public Health, the Health Equity Task Force and the organizations that host the clinics.
“Being a part of the Health Equity Task Force has been a really special experience, in that we’re able to get life-saving vaccines directly out into our communities, in our churches, grocery stores, and barbershops,” said Brandon Morris, a task force member. “Partnering with our churches in this work has been instrumental. We’re… grateful that they’re playing such an important role in helping the community gain greater trust for the COVID vaccines.”
