Northern Light Walk-In Care, located at 174 Kennedy Memorial Drive in Waterville, now offers walk-in Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., seven days a week for anyone 18 years and older.

People do not need to be a current patient, and no appointment is necessary.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Northern Light Inland Hospital has adapted care and service to meet the needs of its communities. As COVID-19 vaccines became available, it moved quickly to offer vaccinations at a central location, designed to deliver vaccine to as many people as possible as quickly as possible. With over half of Maine’s eligible population vaccinated, the hospital decided it was time to shift its approach to ensure that those who have not had the opportunity to be vaccinated can now do so.

While Northern Light has offered pop-up clinics in underserved communities and has been providing personal vaccinations to its homebound community members, the hospital was looking to expand vaccination opportunities for those who were unable to travel to its larger vaccination sites.

The large-scale vaccination clinic, located at Kennebec Valley Community College in Fairfield, will begin tapering hours and days in the coming weeks, with a tentative final day of operation on Friday, June 4, based on demand.
