Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services announced that following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer Vaccine that adolescents 12 through 17 years of age will now be accepted at the Walk-in Vaccine Clinics. A walk-in clinic is being held tomorrow on Wednesday, June 2nd from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the former-IGA Building. All individuals ages 12 years or older can attend, but please keep in mind that minors require a parent to be present.

Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines require two shots to be administered — 21 days apart for Pfizer and 28 days for Moderna. For those who choose to be vaccinated, you may notice some side effects, but these are normal signs that your body is building protection. Some common side effects are a soreness or discomfort at the injection area, fever, chills, tiredness and/or headache. Please call your healthcare provider for any severe allergic reactions or side effects that do not go away after a few days.

Individuals who are 18 years and older and receive the Moderna Vaccine will be entered into a drawing to win prizes: including a 70” Flat Screen TV, $250 BJ’s Gift Card, or a 1-Night Stay in Lake Placid with Zipline tickets! Those who receive the COVID-19 vaccine will also get a voucher for a FREE Sub, courtesy of Subway located in the Speedway Plaza at 935 State Route 37. All minors 12 to 17-year-olds who receive the Pfizer Vaccine will be entered into a drawing to win a $250 Apple Gift Card.
