According to a press release, the clinic will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Kingdom Cathedral, located at 3820 Stoneshore Road.
All vaccination and boosters will be available at the clinic. People ages 5-7 will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
The Food and Drug Administration granted Emergency Use Authorization on August 31 for the updated Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 bivalent vaccines (updated boosters) to be used as booster doses to prevent severe infection for people ages 12 and older.
