Officials with the FEMA-run vaccination clinic are giving a final friendly reminder to those who want to be vaccinated that time is running out. The last walk-ins are being accepted until 5 p.m.
“It’s a busy day here but at the same time, we still have a lot of walk-up opportunities for folks who want to come out and get their Pfizer dose one. You come here you get your Pfizer dose one. Three weeks later you get your Pfizer dose two, but we also have J&J here today,” Charlie Elison with FEMA said.
After Tuesday, workers will only give out the second Pfizer dose. The plan is to close the Convention Center site by May 25.
