Beginning Sunday, December 5, pediatric COVID-19 vaccines will be available at the Jackson County Expo COVID-19 vaccination site. This is a drive-through vaccination site where people stay in the car to get vaccinated. “I would encourage parents/guardians to assess whether having their child get vaccinated in a drive-through model will be appropriate for them,” states Tanya Phillips, Health Promotion and Preparedness Manager for Jackson County Public Health. “If your child has a fear of getting vaccinated and that has resulted in them needing your assistance to help them hold still, a clinic setting may be a better option for them. It is something for parents to consider.”
