DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — On Saturday morning, the Pittsylvania/Danville Health District is set to host a mobile clinic in Danville with all three COVID-19 vaccines, as well as booster doses, free of charge.
According to the health district, the clinic will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13 at Christ Temple at 180 Kentuck Road.
Health officials say the clinic will offer “first, second, additional primary doses and booster shots at no cost to the public.” The Moderna vaccine and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine are available for anyone 18 and older while the Pfizer vaccine is available for anyone 12 and older.
While vaccines for those ages 5 to 11 will not be offered at this clinic, anyone under the age of 18 still needs to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
“We are excited to offer another opportunity for people in our community to get vaccinated,” said director of the Pittsylvania/Danville and Southside Health Districts, Dr. Scott Spillmann. “Vaccination continues to be our most effective tool in fighting COVID-19.”
Eligible individuals are allowed to receive a booster dose at least six months after receiving their second Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, or at least two months after receiving their Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
“Individuals who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster dose may choose which vaccine product they would like to receive as a booster,” the Pittsylvania/Danville Health District said in a statement about the event. “For those individuals that choose a different product than their primary series, VDH urges you to consult with your doctor or healthcare provider who can assist you in making the best decision for your own situation.”
