WEST NEWBURY — The Lower Merrimack Valley Regional Collaborative is pleased to announce that it will host three community COVID-19 vaccination clinics for all eligible age groups with first, second and booster doses available.
Monday, Dec. 27, Jan. 3 and Jan. 10, from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
West Newbury Town Office Building Annex, 381 Main St., West Newbury, MA
A series of Monday evening clinics will administer first, second and booster doses of all vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen) to all eligible age groups.
First and second doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Pediatric Vaccine — the same vaccine administered to adults but at a lower dosage — will be administered to those age 5 to 11 with a signed consent form from a parent or guardian.
The CDC recommends anyone age 5 and older get the vaccine in order to stop the spread of COVID-19 as cases continue to rise following the Omicron variant.
The CDC recommends that those who have completed a full Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna regimen seek out a booster shot six months after their second dose, and that those who received a Janssen dose seek a booster shot two months after their initial vaccination. Individuals can check if they are eligible for a booster by using the eligibility tool at mass.gov/BoosterCheck.
Vaccines are free. Insurance is not required. Attendees will be required to wear masks and maintain physical distance in accordance with current Massachusetts guidelines regarding clinics.
