Waushara County Community Vaccine Clinics Offered for Ages 5 and Up
The Waushara County Health Department and Family Health La Clinica community health center, in partnership with Waushara County schools, will be holding several upcoming walk-in community vaccine clinics to help vaccinate the public against COVID-19. Children aged 5 to 11 are now able to receive the 2-dose Pfizer pediatric vaccine series. Vaccines are provided at no cost and no appointment is needed.
The next Saturday vaccine clinic will take place at Parkside School, located at 300 16th Avenue in Wautoma, on November 13th from 9am to noon. All COVID-19 vaccine types and doses will be offered on this date, including booster shots. The 2-dose Pfizer vaccine series will be available for all aged 5 and up, the 2-dose Moderna vaccine for ages 18 and up, and the 1-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine for all aged 18 and up.
If you already had your COVID-19 vaccine and would like to get a booster shot, you can choose any COVID-19 vaccine type for your booster. It does not need to be the same type as your initial dose(s). It must be at least 6 months since you completed your initial Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series and at least 2 months since you received your Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
To help vaccinate children aged 5 to 11, additional vaccine clinics at each Waushara County school district are planned. These vaccine clinics are also open to the community and both children and adults can be vaccinated. However, these school-based clinic dates will offer the Pfizer vaccine only. Each location will have two dates set 21 days apart to plan for both first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine series. Only one dose is needed for those coming for a booster shot.
The public is encouraged to choose the location that is most convenient for them. All clinic dates below are scheduled from 4-7 PM. All doses of the Pfizer vaccine for ages 5 and up will be offered at no cost.
