(WFXR) – Three COVID-19 vaccine clinics have been scheduled in our region this week.

The first takes place at the Maury River Senior Center at 2137 Magnolia Avenue in Buena Vista between noon and 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19.

This clinic will dispense the Moderna vaccine.

Everyone participating must be over the age of 18 as the Moderna vaccine has not yet been approved by the CDC.
