Augusta Health Vaccine Clinic Update: June 21, 2021

June 21, 2021
Published in: COVID-19

In partnership with the Central Shenandoah Health District (CSHD), Augusta Health continues community vaccinations for COVID-19.

Current Vaccination Dose Count at Augusta Health:

  • Doses given on Saturday, June 19, 2021: 68

  • Total doses given at Augusta Health Vaccination Clinics: 79.478

  • Community member fully-vaccinated at AH Vaccination Clinics: 41,112

Vaccination Efforts

Augusta Health is vaccinating everyone age 12 and older who lives, works or goes to school in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for individuals age 18 and over. Pfizer vaccine is authorized for individuals age 12 and older; a parent or guardian must be present to consent to vaccination of those under the age of 18.

The focus of vaccinations efforts has shifted from the large-scale, on-campus mass vaccination clinics to smaller, more convenient neighborhood-based clinics throughout the community. Large clinics will still be scheduled regularly, but in half-day increments.

Community-Based Clinics

Augusta Health also provides off-campus, community-based clinics in partnership with local organizations, churches and schools. The number of these clinics has increased significantly.

Last week, nine community events provided 246 doses of vaccine. This week, these community clinics are scheduled:

  • On Tuesday, June 22

    • At Stokesville Community Church from 4 pm – 6 pm (Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson).

  • On Wednesday, June 23

    • At Fort Defiance High School from 10 am – 12:30 pm (Pfizer).

  • On Thursday, June 24

    • At the Cadence Job Fair from 8 am – 10 am (Johnson & Johnson).

  • On Friday, June 25

    • At Stuarts Draft High School from 1 pm – 4:30 pm (Pfizer).

    • At the Cadence Job Fair from 3 pm – 6 pm (Johnson & Johnson).
