A mass COVID-19 vaccination event’s coming up on Sunday, but it’s not for everybody.
“If you do come to the event, and you do not have an appointment…you will be turned away. You will not get a vaccine unless you have an appointment.”
Sam Henley’s the Assistant Director of the Emergency Management Agency of Camden County.
Henley tells KRMS News if you do have an appointment you should arrive 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled vaccination and if you have not yet registered because you don’t have access to a computer, they will gladly help you out on the phone.
“For the people who don’t have access to a computer, and can’t really get into that area…you can give us a call at the EMA office. If you are older, we would be more than happier to fill out the information and get you onto the list.”
KRMS News will keep you posted on any changes that might occur due to the weather.
For now the vaccination is set to happen at School of the Osage on Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm.
