The Wilkes-Barre Health Department will offer COVID-19 booster shots in the McHale Athletic Center on Thursday, Dec. 2, and Monday, Dec 6.
Appointments are available throughout the day for those who qualify. You are considered qualified if at least six months have passed since the final dose of your initial vaccine, meaning it was received on June 2, June 6, or earlier, and you are over the age of 18.
Individuals can choose Moderna or Johnson & Johnson during this clinic. As a reminder, individuals may receive any approved COVID-19 vaccine as their booster dose. It does not need to be the same vaccine manufacturer administered as part of your primary series.
If you have not done so already, you may also schedule an appointment for your initial vaccine dose.
Thirty appointments per day have been reserved for Wilkes students, faculty and staff.
Family members or the general public are welcome to call the Wilkes-Barre Health Department for appointment availability: 570-208-4653.
Please note that flu shots will also be available during these clinics. Flu shots will be administered for walk-ins, but COVID-19 boosters are by appointment only.

The importance of booster doses cannot be overstated. Please get your booster dose as you are qualified to do so.
