WMH Vaccinating Local Students at School Clinics

By Margaret Allen
All businesses, events and venues in Pennsylvania have returned to 100 percent capacity with the lifting of COVID-19 mitigation orders this week. The current order requiring masks for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals remains in place until June 28th or when 70 percent of the population is fully vaccinated, whichever comes first. Efforts are continuing to make the vaccine easily accessible to everyone eligible here in Wayne and Pike Counties. With the end of school year in sight, Dr. James Cruse, Medical Director at Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers, said vaccine clinics were held at the area schools last week.

Dr. Cruse: "We've now had clinics at Wallenpaupack, Delaware Valley, Wayne Highlands, and Western Wayne. We will be having second dose clinics in the schools starting at about two weeks. So if your child missed the first round, they can still get it in the upcoming coming clinic and get their second dose at another clinic later on. So it is not too late to get your teens vaccinated before summer so the whole family is ready for summer vacation."

Everyone is still being required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs.
