The second round of COVID-19 vaccines are scheduled for Wednesday, January 27 at the NEMO Fairgrounds. This will be a drive-through clinic from 10am until 5:45pm. The limited number of doses will be administered to target groups, not to the general public. Target groups include remaining long-term care workers, hospital and healthcare workers, first responders, social services workers, teachers and staff in K-12 schools, childcare workers, and workers in communications and information technology, energy/utilities, public works, critical manufacturing and government. There are only a limited number of doses available for January 27. Members of these target groups must pre-register for the drive-through by calling 660-730-6100 or 660-730-6200, Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm.
The Adair County Health Department has ordered and is awaiting receipt of additional doses of the vaccine which they will begin administering at “Curbside Clinics” on the Health Department’s grounds in Kirksville. Initial Curbside Clinic vaccines will be administered to residents age 65 and older, and to residents age 18 and older who are at increased risk for severe illness, including those with cancer, kidney disease, COPD, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, heart conditions, immunocompromised conditions, severe obesity, sickle cell disease, diabetes, asthma and women who are pregnant.
