FARMINGTON — Franklin Memorial Hospital’s COVID-19 walk-in vaccine clinic is to administer the Pfizer vaccine for those 12 and older from 1 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 25.

Parental consent is required for anyone younger than 18. The Pfizer vaccine will require a second dose 21 days later.

Also offered the week of May 24, the hospital will take walk-ins from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday for individuals 18 and older to receive the first dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Vaccines are provided at no cost, and all are welcome as Maine residency is no longer required.

Everyone entering the clinic should use the hospital front entrance wearing a mask, and will be given a surgical mask to place over or replace a cloth one. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s recent updated guidance on masking for fully-vaccinated people does not apply in health care settings.

For more information, call Franklin Memorial Hospital between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at 207-778-6031.

Starting June 9, the FMH clinic is scaling back walk-ins to Wednesdays only. Appointments can also be made online at vaccine.mainehealth.org.
