MarillacHealth hosts Saturday clinics for Pfizer vaccine

Community

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Hosted at the Central High school, Marillac Health has slots open for six Saturdays, giving people a chance to get the Pfizer vaccine. Being in Phase 1-B.4 for vaccinations, this means people ages 50 and older, and frontline and essential workers are eligible.

Marillac Health plans to fully vaccinate close to five thousand community members in the six Saturdays that they will have the drive-up clinic. Officials assure that the site follows the state guidelines like everyone else.

“We’re following all the exact same protocols;” Ivan Coziahr informs, “so we have EMTs that are out there that are monitoring people that are waiting in their cars and are highly trained to take care of anybody that might have a reaction.”

The next vaccine clinic will be on Saturday, March 27th. Each clinic will be held every Saturday from 9 a.m-6 p.m with volunteers from COVIDCheck Colorado, CMU Nursing School, Central High students, and more.

The last 3 Saturdays will be reserved for second doses.

A Sign-Up Vaccine Center is located at the Peachtree Shopping Center – east end of the parking lot. Marillac has a COVID Test site office trailer set up to register individuals for the vaccine events Monday through Friday between 9 a.m and 5 p.m.

You can also register in line at the clinic.
