Mount Rogers Health District, Bristol Public Library Host Vaccine Clinics
(Marion, Va.) – The Mount Rogers Health District and Bristol Public Library will host a Moderna vaccine clinic on each Thursday in May from 12-3 p.m. for community members.
“The Bristol Public Library is thrilled to partner with the Mount Rogers Health District to offer this service to the community,” said Garry Wakely, Bristol Public Library program and marketing coordinator.
“We are excited to give COVID-19 vaccines in the heart of downtown Bristol,” said Dr. Karen Shelton, health director. “With the spread of variants in our region, it is more important than ever to get your vaccine to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.”
The Moderna vaccine is approved for those 18 and older. Individuals with specific medical concerns or questions should consult their health care provider about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Individuals who are in quarantine or isolation for COVID-19 should wait until that condition resolves before scheduling an appointment. Those who have received monoclonal antibodies or plasma treatment for COVID-19 within the last 90 days should wait until the 90-day mark before scheduling an appointment. Those who have received another vaccine within the last 14 days should wait to schedule an appointment until the 14-day mark.
The clinic will be held at the Bristol Public Library, 701 Goode Street, Bristol, Virginia. Appointments are preferred, but are not required. To schedule an appointment, visit www.vdh.virginia.gov/mount-rogers/appointments/ or call the Bristol City Health Department at (276) 642-7335.
