CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department is hosting a vaccination clinic for those 80-years-old and older Friday, Jan. 8, 2021. The clinic will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center.
The KCHD says they are receiving 170 additional doses of the vaccine. At the clinic, the vaccines will be administered by appointment only and the phone system is already being overwhelmed. Those who want to make appointments should call the health department at (304) 644-8727. They say do not leave a voicemail, but call again as the appointments could be filled before the KCHD can answer the voicemail.
Free parking for the clinic will be available in the Coliseum parking garage. They say those who aren’t able to walk from the vehicle to the clinic need to indicate that information while making the appointment so someone can administer the dose at their vehicle.
