Unfortunately, this clinic was canceled, and appointments were rescheduled for next Thursday, February 25, 2021. Those who were scheduled for the clinic should have received a phone call to inform them of the reschedule. All COVID-19 vaccination clinics scheduled for next week, 2/22/2021-2/26/2021, should not be impacted and occur as planned.
