Some local COVID-19 vaccine doses now available to those 12+ years old

With the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine now being allowed in more teens, starting at 12 years old and up, Winona Health is offering its clinic Saturday to anyone falling in the newly extended age group.

The clinic, which is the second one open to this larger age group this week, will be held from 8 a.m. to noon.

No scheduled appointments will be offered during the weekend clinic, with walk-ins instead being accepted.

A second dose of the vaccine will be required in three weeks at Winona Health. Two weeks after such dose patients will be fully vaccinated against the quickly spreading disease.

The vaccine clinic will be held at the Parkview Office Building, located at 825 Mankato Ave. in Winona.
