Clark County Health Department's Next Vaccination Clinic This Thursday
Monday, May 3rd, 2021 -- 3:01 PM
The Clark County Health Department is holding their next drive through vaccination clinic this Thursday, May 6th from 9am-4pm at the Greenwood Fire Department.
The clinic is by appointment only for anyone age 18 and over. Everyone age 16 and over are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, but only Pfizer vaccines are approved for those aged 16 and 17.
The Clark County Health Department has said that if interest continues to decrease for CCHD COVID-19 drive through vaccine clinics, this will be CCHD’s last drive-through vaccine clinic at the Greenwood Area Fire and EMS Department for 1st doses.
CCHD will administer 2nd doses at the same location for those who have already received their 1st dose at previous clinics. CCHD will be looking into other avenues to administer COVID-19 vaccines to those who are still in need of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
Sign up for appointments here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5-6-21-clarkcountydrivethroughclinic-6. If appointment slots are already full, please do not call the CCHD or their local partners. The CCHD is not able to keep waiting lists at this time.
Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes prior to your appointment time for safety and traffic concerns. Sign up for 1 quantity per person that would like to receive the vaccine. For example if there is a husband and wife coming to the clinic together, sign up for a QTY of 2.
Please sign up for a time slot by 3:00pm on the day prior to the drive-through clinic. Those who do not sign up by 3:00pm are not guaranteed a vaccine. Those who make an appointment, be prepared to sign-up for an appointment for your 2nd dose exactly 4 weeks later while you receive your 1st dose at the drive-through clinic.
You will not be guaranteed your 2nd dose if you are unable to make an appointment exactly 4 weeks later. Please consider not signing up for an appointment if you are unavailable exactly 4 weeks later.
Please follow the instructions listed online which includes 4 simple steps, which includes review, complete, and print (if able) the fillable COVID-19 Vaccine Administration Record. (Please consult with your medical provider if needed prior to receiving the vaccine for any questions you may have); review the Moderna Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Fact Sheet for Recipients; review V-Safe Information Handout; and review FAQ About COVID-19 Vaccination: What Vaccine Recipients Need to Know After Receipt of a COVID-19 Vaccine.
Please bring the following items with you to the vaccination clinic including completed COVID-19 Vaccine Administration Record and, for 2nd Dose Individuals, Vaccination Record Card (Hard Copy).
Please wear clothing that will easily allow the RN’s to administer the vaccine (t-shirt or a long sleeve that can be easily rolled to the upper arm to gain access to the deltoid muscle).
You will be required to wait in your vehicle for 15 minutes post-vaccination for monitoring purposes. EMS will be on-site and assisting with the monitoring. Expect a potential wait time. They thank you in advance for your patience.
If you are unable to make your appointment due to inclement weather or personal reasons, or arrive after the clinic hours, you will not be guaranteed your dose.
You will have to schedule another appointment at a future CCHD COVID-19 vaccine clinic or reach out to your local healthcare provider, pharmacy, etc. As a reminder, those who are planning on receiving their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccination must receive it from the same manufacturer.
Those who receive the Moderna vaccine must wait 28 days from their first vaccination before receiving a second dose, and those who receive the Pfizer vaccine must wait at least 21 days. CCHD may start looking into other avenues to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
