Vanchiere, an infectious disease specialist who doubles as head of the medical school's vaccination effort, says that the Fairgrounds site will be back open Thursday and Friday from 10 til 6 with the both the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. He adds that henceforth the Fairgrounds vaccination site will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
He adds that the schools Linwood Avenue site (the old Chevyland building at 2627 Linwood) will be vaccinating with the Pfizer version Tuesday (March 23), from 5 til 9pm. Approximately 500 J&J doses will be available,
The doctor also points out that those wanting the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can go to the Linwood site on Saturday (March 20) from 1 til 4pm.
And Vanchiere says he thinks it won't be long before all qualifications to receive the vaccines will be dropped. "I think that's probably going to happen within the next week or so. Other states have opened up to anybody who is of age and so I think that's coming soon."
