Are you vaccinated yet?

If not, two clinics were announced on Thursday that will offer convenient access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

First, on July 14 and 15, Harristown Enterprises will sponsor a clinic inside of Strawberry Square, just inside the Walnut Street entrance.

The clinic will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day in the retail space that long housed the Hallmark store, where Rite Aid will administer the Pfizer vaccine.

“We’re happy to provide space for this vital healthcare initiative,” said Brad Jones, president and CEO of Harristown, which owns Strawberry Square. “The public deserves to have the opportunity to receive vaccinations without obstacles, and we’d like to recognize Rite Aid for their willingness to partner with us to provide the vaccines.”

Vaccinations are free to anyone 18 years and older, offered on a first-come, first-served basis. No appointments are necessary. Children ages 12 to 17 are also eligible to receive the vaccine with parental or guardian consent.

This is the second vaccine clinic at this location, following one early last month.

Across the river, Central Penn College will hold a vaccine clinic on July 16 and again on Aug. 6, from 10 a.m. to noon.

At this clinic, attendees will have the option of receiving either the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the two-dose Pfizer vaccine.

“This is a great opportunity for our campus community and people who live and work nearby to protect themselves against the virus,” said. Romeo Azondekon, vice president of student services at Central Penn.
