Vaccine clinic at Berrien County fairgrounds includes food voucher
BERRIEN SPRINGS, Mich. -- The Berrien County Health Department is resuming its mass vaccination clinics - hoping to vaccinate hundreds Wednesday.
This time, with an incentive for anyone who gets a shot.
From 4 to 7 that afternoon, you can drive to the Berrien County Youth fairgrounds in Berrien Springs and get any of the three vaccine providers without ever leaving your car.
And there’s more, the fair has brought in food trucks – similar to when they do their fair food drive-thru – and anyone who is vaccinated will get a $5 voucher to use that day.
The health department hasn’t offered vaccine incentives in the past, but said this is a great way to encourage people, while also supporting the youth fair as it prepares for its return this year.
But, there are some important reminders if you’re a minor getting the Pfizer shot.
“Parents can bring their adolescents over the age of 12 to our vaccine event and receive Pfizer, set them up to have a COVID-19 free summer, and any individuals under 18 do also need to have a parent with them,” said Gillian Conrad, MPH, Communications Manager at the Berrien County Health Department.
The health department is allowing walk-ins or you make an appointment on their website.
