Free COVID-19 vaccinations will be offered at this year’s Warren County A&L Fair.
“The Fair Board encourages everyone to make responsible choices about their health,” said fair president Regan Kelsey. “The choice to get vaccinated is a personal one that should be made by an individual after consulting their healthcare provider. And while we as the fair are not taking a side in the vaccination debate, this is just one more way we can offer a service to our neighbors who may choose to take advantage of it.”
Graves Family Pharmacy is partnering with the fair to provide this service for the fair-goers who wish to be vaccinated.
“We wanted to make it as easy as possible to take the vaccine if they wanted it and we thought that there’s a good crowd there at the fair and we just wanted to have the availability of vaccines for anyone who wants it,” said pharmacy owner Chad Graves.
The free vaccinations will be available daily from 4 to 7:30 p.m. and begin Monday, Sept. 13 and end Saturday, Sept. 18. Vaccinations will be available near the medical tent in the main village at the fairgrounds.
A drive-up vaccination clinic for those who are at-risk will also take place on Tuesday, Sept. 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. The location of that drive-up clinic will be determined in the coming days.
While there will be vaccinations offered, there will not be COVID-19 testing at the fair at any time. The fair board says individuals who feel sick, experience symptoms, or have been exposed to COVID-19 should not come to the fair.
The Warren County A&L Fair will be releasing more details as they become available. For more information, check the fair’s daily schedules.
