COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A mobile vaccine clinic will be in several neighborhoods throughout Columbus next week.

The effort to increase local vaccination rates is part of the Health Department’s Public Health on Wheels.

Health officials will be providing COVID shots to children ages five and up, all three booster doses, and flu shots.

Pamela Kirkland at The Columbus Health Department says they were able to purchase the mobile unit using a $150,000 grant from the city.

“We received a grant from the city through the community reinvesting program and so that’s why we’re doing locations in Columbus to start out with. Eventually, we will take it into all of the district counties,” said Kirkland.

The mobile unit will be at the following locations in Columbus:

  • Monday, December 6th - Frank B Chester Rec Center, 1441 Benning Drive, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, December 7th - Piggly Wiggly, 4916 River Road, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, December 8th - Mercy Med, 3702 2nd Avenue, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, December 9th - Elizabeth Canty Homes, 2000 Cusseta Rd, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Friday, December 10th – Piggly Wiggly, 2424 Woodruff Farm Road, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
