Kenosha County Public Health, the Health Equity Task Force and other partners are collaborating on a series of mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics this month.

All three clinics will offer Visa gift card incentives to those who receive a first, second or booster dose of any of the three vaccine varieties — Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson.

The clinics will serve people ages 5 and older. (Those under 18 must be with a parent or guardian.) All vaccines are free, and I.D. or health insurance are not required.

Clinic details are as follows:

Sunday, Jan. 16: New Brighter Day Baptist Church
When: 2 to 3 p.m.
Where: 1225 25th Ave., Kenosha

Walk-ins are welcome at all three clinics — no appointments are needed, and clinic clients do not need to be a member of the organizations hosting the events.

The Rev. Joseph Thomas, pastor at New Brighter Day Baptist Church, said he is pleased to offer a vaccination clinic to the community.

“Most of us have gotten dozens of vaccines over our lifetimes, enabling us to keep ourselves, our families, and our communities safe and healthy,” Thomas said. “With the world facing a global pandemic, one of the easiest and most effective things we can do for ourselves and for each other is to get vaccinated.”

People are also welcome to come to the clinics to talk with health professionals about the vaccines, said Tamarra Coleman, a member of the Health Equity Task Force, a group of community leaders working to provide more equitable access to COVID-19 vaccination for communities of color.

“Our faith-based communities have really stepped up in partnering with the Health Equity Task Force and Kenosha County Public Health to provide COVID-19 vaccines and even the booster shots,” Coleman said. “It’s available to not only these congregations, but the entire community. It’s going to take us collaboratively working together to get this under control.” 

Clinic visitors 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.
