Free Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics in Kenosha County Slated for January | Local News I Racine County Eye

KENOSHA – Three mobile clinics are planned in Kenosha County in January to help residents get vaccinated against COVID-19. Each clinic offers $ 50 Visa gift card incentives for people receiving any type of COVID-19 vaccination: a first, second, or booster dose from Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson.

The clinics are made possible through a collaboration with Kenosha County Public Health, the Health Equity Task Force, and other partners. Through these efforts, vaccines are free and available to everyone aged five and over. (Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent / legal guardian.)

Getting a vaccine couldn’t be easier. Walk-ins are welcome at all three events and the participants do not have to belong to the clinics’ sponsoring organizations. Neither ID nor health insurance is required for the vaccination.

If you have already received the first or second dose of the vaccine, the clinic will ask you to bring your vaccination card, but it is not required to receive a vaccine.

Talk to church leaders

New Brighter Day Baptist Church pastor Rev. Joseph Thomas said he was pleased to offer the community a vaccination clinic.

“Most of us have received dozens of vaccines in our lifetime that enable us to keep ourselves, our families and our communities safe and healthy,” said Thomas. “In the face of a global pandemic, one of the easiest and most effective things we can do for ourselves and for each other is vaccination.”

The Health Equity Task Force is a group of community leaders who advocate equitable access to COVID-19 vaccinations for communities of color. People are also welcome to come to the clinics to speak to health professionals about the vaccines, said member Tamarra Coleman.

“Our faith communities have really stepped up working with the Health Equity Task Force and Kenosha County Public Health to provide COVID-19 vaccines and even the booster,” Coleman said. “It is available not only to these churches, but to the entire church. We have to work together to get this under control. “
