Jefferson County Health Department (JCHD) will be holding a walk-in clinic for COVID-19 vaccination on Saturday, May 8 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Johnson Creek Premium Outlet Mall. Anyone over the age of 18 is eligible, and ID is not required.
JCHD is excited to offer this clinic for those who may not be able to get vaccinated on a weekday, those who might have difficulty making an appointment online, or anyone else who simply wants to walk in and get their COVID-19 vaccine.
JCHD expects to have the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, and may also have the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine available. Individuals must be 18 years of age to receive the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. Individuals who are 16 or 17 years of age should register for an upcoming clinic where the Pfizer vaccine is available.
The walk-in clinic will not require appointments, and will be located at the Johnson Creek Premium Outlet Mall, 575 West Linmar Lane, Suite A40, Johnson Creek 53038, next door to the Nike Outlet store.
Vaccination is quick (about 30-40 minutes) and safe. You can expect some fatigue, soreness and fever, but over-the-counter medication will help with those common effects of ones immune system doing its work.
