The University of Maine at Farmington is scheduled to host a public walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic for adults from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, at 274 Front St.

Vaccines are provided at no cost.

Those attending will be administered with their choice of the one-dose Johnson & Johnson or the two-dose Moderna vaccine by staff from NorthStar EMS and Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County.

For those individuals who choose to receive their first dose of the Moderna vaccine, a follow-up clinic at the same location will take place on Saturday, Oct. 16. Those individuals should bring their COVID-19 vaccination card with them.

Everyone entering should wear a mask and will be screened for symptoms. Once inside, individuals will be given a hospital mask to wear.

After getting vaccinated there is a short wait period before being allowed to leave; the entire process should take about 30 minutes.

For more information, call Jill Gray, communications and public affairs manager, at 207-779-2555.
