Vaccination clinics

The Brownwood-Brown County Health Department has scheduled several COVID-19 vaccination clinics throughout the month of September.

There is no fee to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Walk-ins will be welcome at the scheduled clinics during September. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations will be offered at the clinics.

“COVID-19 vaccination reduces the risk of COVID-19 and its potentially severe complications,” Health Department Administrator Lisa Dick explained. “All COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized for use in the United States help protect people against COVID-19, including severe illness which often results in hospitalization.”

The clinics scheduled for September are:

• Thursday, Sept. 9 — 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Adams Street Community Center, 511 E. Adams Street, next to the Brownwood Public Library.

• Thursday, Sept. 16 — 2p.m.  to 7 p.m. at the Adams Street Community Center
