Do you need a COVID-19 vaccine?
Drive-thru clinic is April 9 & 10, no appointments necessary
If you’ve found it difficult to make time to get a COVID-19 vaccine, Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County’s free drive-thru clinic may be the answer.
The hospital has 500 Moderna vaccines it plans to administer from 2-7 p.m. April 9 and 10 during a drive-thru clinic at the hospital’s main entrance. Those getting the vaccine must be 18 years old or older.
Here’s how you can get the first of two Moderna vaccines:
- Please travel east up Skyline to the hospital entrance. Avoid College Drive for entry.
- Once on campus, drive along the front of the hospital to the main entrance under the awning at 1200 College Drive.
- You’ll be asked to fill out some paperwork.
- Pull forward under the awning to receive your vaccine.
- You’ll then be asked to pull into a parking area to wait for 15 minutes as a precaution against possible reactions.
It’s that simple.
MHSC will schedule a booster clinic on May 7 and 8 to offer the second vaccine. You’ll be provided with information on the drive-thru times, other health precautions, and a vaccination card that you must bring back for the second vaccine.
