Second Dose of Vaccine Rescheduled for Jan. 27 Recipients

The clinic for the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine in Adair County has been rescheduled. The Adair County Health Department’s administration of the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine will happen on Wednesday, February 24th, at The Crossing in Kirksville. The second dose is only for those who received their first dose on January 27, not for the general public. The clinic is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Vaccine recipients should arrive at The
Crossing at the same time as their first dose was scheduled on January 27th. T

here is no charge for the vaccine; however, Medicare beneficiaries are asked to bring their Medicare card with them to the clinic.

Frigid winter weather forced the postponement of the second dose administration
originally scheduled for this week. While the CDC recommends the second dose of
the Pfizer vaccine be administered at least 21 days after the first dose, Jim LeBaron, the Adair County Health Department administrator says there is no issue with getting the second dose more than 21 days after the first.
