New clinics announced, filled by waitlists
CHARLESTON — Three more COVID-19 vaccine clinics have been scheduled for residents of Hancock and Brooke counties this week, although officials with the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources note all three clinics already are at capacity.
The clinics, open to West Virginians age 65 years and older, were announced Monday as part of the state’s continuing Operation Save Our Wisdom.
The local clinics have been set for 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at the John D. Rockefeller Career Center in New Cumberland; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday at the Wellsburg Fire Hall in Wellsburg; and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at Lauttamus Communication Center, 1000 Colliers Way, Weirton.
All are full through the use of existing waitlists, and require appointments.
West Virginians can now pre-register for a COVID-19 vaccine through the West Virginia COVID-19 Vaccine Registration System at vaccinate.wv.gov.
The community vaccination clinic model will continue to be used each week and additional locations will be added as vaccine supply increases, according to officials.
Clinics also are scheduled this week in Berkeley, Braxton, Cabell, Greenbrier, Harrison, Hardy, Kanawha, Logan, Marshall, Mercer, Monongalia, Pocahontas, Raleigh, Randolph and Wyoming counties.
Residents from any county in West Virginia may access an appointment at any of the vaccination clinics listed, regardless of their county of residence.
