PHENIX CITY, Ala. (WTVM) - Chattahoochee Valley Community College is partnering with Preferred Medical Group to host a COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot clinic.

The clinic takes place on Tuesday, November 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The clinic is being held at Chattahoochee Valley Community College located at 2602 College Drive in Phenix City.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and booster shots will be available to anyone who attends the event - free of cost. If you plan to attend, a driver’s license or other valid form of ID is required and if you’re getting a booster shot, you must bring your vaccination card.

To get your booster shot, you must be at least 18 years old, and you must wait six months after your initial round of Moderna or Pfizer vaccinations - or wait 2 months after your initial Johnson & Johnson vaccination.

People who wish to get vaccinated for the first time must be at least 5 years old to receive the Pfizer vaccine at and least 18 years old to receive the Moderna vaccine.

“One in 500 Americans have died from COVID-19, but here in Alabama, the numbers are even worse.  One out of 300 people in Alabama have died from COVID-19.  This is not a political issue.  It is a public health issue.  We just want everyone to be safe,” said Abi Harmon, COVID-19 Prevention & Response Coordinator.

Mixing and matching is allowed. You may choose which vaccine you want for your booster shot, even if you got a different brand for your initial round of vaccinations.

Additional eligibility requirements can be found at cdc.gov/COVID-19.
