Second Shot COVID Vaccination Clinics, February 10 and 12, by Appointment Only, for those First Vaccinated at Boyce on January 11
(Winchester, Va.) — The Lord Fairfax Health District will provide no-cost second shot COVID vaccines, Monday, February 8 and Wednesday, February 10, 2021, for persons first vaccinated at Boyce Fire Hall on 11 January. These clinics will occur at Clarke County Health Department, 100 N. Buckmarsh St., Berryville, and Frederick/Winchester Health Department, 10 Baker St., Winchester. Vaccines will be given by appointment only, and the Health Department will reach out to those who attended the Boyce clinic.
“These are second-shot clinics only,” said Lord Fairfax Health District Director Colin Greene. “They are designed to allow those who were vaccinated at Boyce Fire Hall to receive their booster shot, and to maximize their chance of achieving lasting immunity to COVID-19.”
These clinics will be open only for second shots for the above group, by appointment only, and no walk-in vaccinations will be given. The Health District will use existing contact information to reach out to each vaccinated person to schedule an appointment. The Health Department staff asks that each person bring the vaccine card from the first shot to allow proper documentation, and to arrive up to 15 minutes before their appointment times, but no earlier. Early arrivals may be asked to return at their appointment times. Every eligible person will receive a vaccine at their appointment.
To protect yourself and healthcare workers, please wear a cloth face covering or mask. Keep at least six feet of distance between yourself and other people at all times. Everyone is encouraged to continue safe practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19: cloth face-coverings or masks, distancing, washing hands well and often, and avoiding gatherings with anyone who is not a member of your household.
