to offer walk-in vaccination services!
“I am grateful to have this opportunity to help keep our community safe by offering a location for residents to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine.” said Will Price, Executive Director of United Way of Venango County in a press release. “I encourage anyone that has been on the fence to take advantage of these events and get vaccinated.”
Currently only about 39% of Venango County residents that are fully vaccinated, according to Price..
Three walk-in clinics dates will be offered at Adagio Health, 3292 State Route 257 in Seneca on Oct. 4 from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., Oct. 5 from 7;15 a.m to 4:45 p.m and Oct. 8 from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.
Through a United Way grant this program will give $10 gift cards to those who take advantage of this offer and a second $10 card for the second dose as well as eligible folks getting the booster per FDA and CDC guidelines.
These guidelines include:
- people 65 years or older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster of the Pfizer vaccine,
- people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster of the Pfizer vaccine,
- people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster of the Pfizer vaccine, based on their individual benefits and risks, and
- people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine, based on their individual benefits and risks.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccine will both be available for participating citizens. Individuals do not need to be a Venango County resident to receive the vaccine. Appointments are not required but are recommended and can be scheduled by calling 814-676-1811.
“I am delighted to partner with Adagio and play a role in protecting our residents' health. I look forward to working with them to bring more vaccination services to our area.” said Price.
