Sign-ups open for Friday clinic
For those Warren County residents who have eagerly awaited their turn at a COVID vaccine – now is the time.
Gaughn’s Drug Store has received its largest weekly allocation so far and is hoping to put 1,000 first doses into arms during three clinics in the next seven days.
“We have gotten a large allocation over the last couple days,” Owner and Pharmacist Scott Newton said. “I have over 1,000 first-dose Moderna vaccines.”
Friday’s clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the First Church of God at 1111 Madison Ave. in Warren.
There will not be walk-in opportunities on Friday. All patients must have appointments. But, as of Wednesday afternoon, there were hundreds of appointments available for Friday.
“We have 300 doses allocated,” Newton said. “We’ve only had 23 people sign up.”
There are links at www.gaughns.com and the Gaughn’s Drug Store Facebook page to schedule appointments for Friday. Once those are filled, the links will stop working.
“If it fills up, don’t panic,” he said. “We’re going to have more next week.”
