In addition, residents can visit the Community Vaccination Center at Military Circle Mall any day of the week from 9 am. to 7 p.m. for their free vaccine.

All community members are welcome at the vaccination center. Reasonable accommodation for people with access and functional needs is available as well as information and onsite interpretation in a variety of languages, including American Sign Language.

Individuals who are 16 or 17 will need to have a parent or guardian with them at the vaccination site in order to receive the vaccine.
