The Cumberland County Department of Public Health will hold a drive-thru vaccination clinic Saturday, Jan. 23, starting at 9 a.m. at the Crown Complex. After vaccinating 1,357 people today, the department expects the limited number of available doses for Saturday to go quickly.

Appointment blocks are scheduled in the morning and the clinic can accommodate first-come, first-served as supplies allow. The clinic will have first and second doses of the Moderna vaccine only on Saturday. They will not have any doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

The department is offering the coronavirus vaccine to people ages 65 and older and all healthcare workers who have in-person patient contact.

The Health Department is planning to hold drive-thru clinics on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Crown Complex starting at 9 a.m. each day. The schedule may be adjusted based on allocations of vaccine received each week.

The Health Department will receive 975 first doses of Pfizer for next week and will have second doses of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for next week.

Visit the County’s vaccine website for information on how to request an appointment at the clinics. Appointment slots are 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. and 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. each day. The clinics switch to first-come, first-served after 1 p.m.
