Pop-up vaccine clinics offered in Brunswick County

BRUNSWICK COUNTY — Though Covid-19 vaccination sites and Brunswick County offices will be closed Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, multiple clinics are popping up in the coming week.

Sites will open Jan. 18-22 for anyone ages 12 and up.

Vaccines are free and insurance is not required, with first and second doses of Pfizer offered to ages 12 and up. However, all vaccines will be administered, including Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.

Only the mRNA vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna) are offered for the immunocompromised and as boosters. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend the public seek mRNA vaccines for optimal protection against Covid-19; the vaccines have proven to lessen the severity of the virus and help prevent hospitalization.

Pfizer and Moderna boosters can be administered five months after the last dose. Those who received a Johnson & Johnson can receive a booster two months after the one-shot vaccine was administered and can mix and match with an mRNA vaccine.

Pediatric vaccines for ages 5-11 will not be available at the pop-up clinics but, instead, require an appointment at the Bolivia clinic. Appointments can be made online here or by calling 910-253-23389; a consent form will be required.
