JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) — Jackson County is ramping up its vaccination efforts, with the Jackson Area Transportation Authority (JATA) working alongside the Jackson County Health Department to host a vaccine clinic for those eligible to be vaccinated.

The mobile vaccination clinic will be held at JATA’s Transfer Center on Friday, July 2, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. JATA’s Transfer Center can be found at 127 West Cortland Street in downtown Jackson.

The Jackson County Health Department will be offering two vaccine options, so that those seeking out a vaccine can choose one that best fits their needs:

  • Johnson and Johnson, one dose. Those 18 years and older are eligible for the J&J vaccine.
  • Pfizer, two doses. Ages 12 and up can receive this vaccine, and doses are 21 days apart. The second dose of Pfizer will be administered on July 23.

If you cannot attend the second dose clinic at the JATA Transfer Center, call (517) 788-4420 or visit www.vaccinefinder.org to find another place to receive your second dose at another location. For more information on COVID vaccines in Jackson County, call (517) 788-4420, selecting option 9.
