With vaccine production ramping up around the country, more people from more age groups are beginning to find themselves eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. According to the Biden administration, all Americans regardless of age, should be able to receive a vaccine (if they want one) by May 1.

We have also been seeing several vaccine sites popping up around Maine in the last few weeks, too. Everything from small clinics that can handle a couple dozen a day to 'mass vaccination sites' that are aiming to inoculate a thousand or more a day.

Well, we have some more good news regarding vaccine clinics in our area. According to the Kennebec Journal, a team of Augusta Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians will be hosting a vaccine clinic this Saturday (3-20-21) at Cony High School here in Augusta. The clinic will be held in the food court from noon to three and will be open to people that are age 60 and older.

Though it is a walk-in style clinic, people looking to receive the vaccine MUST reserve a spot. You can reserve yours by clicking this link. The department only has 180 doses for this clinic so it will be 'first come first serve.' Augusta Fire says that as long as they can keep receiving COVID vaccines they will continue to host clinics at Cony High School, so if you don't get in this weekend, keep checking back.

Cony High School is located at 60 Pierce Drive in Augusta and the clinics will be held in the schools food court. Also, be advised that the school has nothing to do with the clinic other than providing a location. So please do not call Cony with questions regarding the vaccine clinic.
