The City of Georgetown, in partnership with Curative, Inc., has opened a COVID-19 vaccination site, in tandem with its ongoing testing efforts, in the parking lot at 717 Martin Luther King Jr. Street, which is north of the Georgetown Public Library. The walk-up site will operate seven days per week, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Individuals 12 and older are eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine offered at the site.
“As the community shifts away from mass vaccinations to more localized efforts, it’s important that residents who are newly eligible or have not had a chance to get their jab still have easy access to vaccines,” said Georgetown Community Services Director Jack Daly. “We really appreciate Curative for staffing this convenient, no-cost-to-the-patient site in Georgetown that will be available every day of the week.”
Registration is encouraged before visiting the vaccine site; however, walk-ups are welcome. Patients younger than 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
