A free, pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be available to the public from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. this Sunday, Feb. 13, at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church in Kenosha.
The clinic will be held in the church gymnasium, located at the corner of Sheridan Road and 73rd Street.
Anyone who receives a dose of vaccine at this clinic will receive a $25 Visa gift card (while supplies last).
Walk-ins are welcome. No appointments are needed, and clinic clients do not need to be a member of the church.
This clinic is being conducted in a partnership between Kenosha County Public Health, the Kenosha County Health Equity Task Force and St. Mark.
“Pope Francis has said that receiving vaccines is a truly moral obligation to protect ourselves, our loved ones and all those around us from the coronavirus,” said St. Mark Pastoral Care Coordinator Karen Metallo. “All of us know of someone that we love who has died or become very ill from the coronavirus. Please get vaccinated.”
First and second vaccine doses will be available for anyone ages 5 and older. Boosters will be offered to those 12 and older. (Those under 18 must be with a parent or legal guardian.)
Clinic clients may choose from the three vaccine varieties — Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson. (Pfizer remains the only vaccine authorized for distribution to those younger than 18.)
Bilingual, Spanish-speaking health professionals will be present at the clinic to answer questions about the vaccines. All vaccines are free, and no I.D. or health insurance are required.
Those who have already received a first or second dose of the vaccine are asked to bring their vaccination card, if possible, although this is not required.
