No appointments are needed for the pop-up clinic, which will run from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Anticipate remaining at the clinic after the vaccination for a 15-minute observation period.
People can choose between the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen single-dose vaccine or the two-dose Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.
Janssen and Moderna are only available to those 18 and over while Pfizer is available to those 12 and over. Moderna requires a second dose at least 28 days after the first and Pfizer's second dose needs to be taken at least 21 days after the first.
The second dose can be administered at any Hy-Vee pharmacy, but an appointment may be necessary. Hy-Vee recommends bringing the vaccination card received with the first dose to the appointment, according to the news release.
The clinic is also offering Moderna and Pfizer shots for moderately to severely immunosuppressed individuals who qualify for a third vaccination, according to the release. No proof of condition is required. This shot must be administered at least 28 days after the second dose.
An added bonus to receiving the first or second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine between June 1 and Nov. 1, 2021 is a chance to win a $10 Hy-Vee gift card.
