Cameron Elementary To Host Pop-Up COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic
The Marshall County Health Department will offer another opportunity for residents to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, this time setting up shop in Cameron.
The department will hold a pop-up vaccine clinic from noon-2 p.m. today at Cameron Elementary School. Pfizer vaccines will be available to children aged 5 to 11 and both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available to anyone 12 and older. Visitors are required to provide ID, as well as a record of vaccination for those getting a booster. Visitors also are asked to wear masks to the clinic, as the school district still requires masks in its buildings.
The Marshall County Health Department reported 50 new confirmed COVID-19 cases and 26 probable cases between Nov. 20-23. The department was closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving. The Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department normally releases weekly COVID updates on Sundays, but none had been released as of Sunday evening.
