KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Klamath Health Partnership and Klamath Union High School are teaming up to host a clinic with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, particularly for those ages 16 to 18 who are approved for the shot.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 8, in the Klamath Union courtyard from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Organizers say it will include free food, drinks, music, and prizes.
Klamath Union students are encouraged to attend, but anyone in the community who is eligible can join. Attendees must have identification that shows date of birth, such as a driver's license, school ID, or birth certificate.
"Klamath Health Partnership is proud to be working with Klamath Union High School to hold the first Pfizer event within the Klamath School Districts," the organization said. "The goal is to reach younger age groups before they are out of school for the summer. All are welcome, even if they still have questions about being vaccinated. A provider will be on-site to answer any questions."
People who plan on attending should expect a check-in and screening process before moving to a vaccination station for the Pfizer shot. Those who get a shot will be observed for 15 to 30 minutes after that. Once observation is over, attendees are invited to stay for the food, drinks, and activities.
