Anyone in need of a COVID-19 vaccine can get one without an appointment at Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health starting Monday, Aug. 2.
Anyone 12 and older can come in from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday, according to a news release Friday.
LDCPH is on the first floor of the Community Health Facility at 200 Maine St. Masks are required for anyone age 2 and up.
Pfizer vaccines — a two-shot series — are available to anyone 12 and up; Johnson & Johnson’s one-dose vaccine is available for anyone 18 and up, according to the health department.
“We are excited to offer access to the vaccines throughout the day to those who are still needing to get vaccinated or complete their vaccine series,” Clinic Officer Supervisor Brittanie Sinisgalli said in the news release.
The health department also has several vaccination clinics coming up — some scheduled soon are at the Cider Gallery, Baker University, Free State High School, and Haskell University, among plenty of others. See the full calendar at this link.
Public health officials have pushed hard to improve vaccination rates as the more-contagious Delta variant of COVID-19 has led to increases in cases nationwide. See the latest stats for Lawrence and Douglas County on The Lawrence Times’ COVID-19 stat dashboard.
