Make appointments for August Vaccination Clinics; Free test kits and masks available

Veterans Memorial Hospital Community and Home Care/Allamakee County Public Health will continue to offer all doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at their weekly immunization clinics each Wednesday throughout the month of August. These vaccinations are by appointment only. To make an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination, in August and beyond, call Veterans Memorial Hospital Community and Home Care at 563-568-5660.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Be sure to wear a mask and bring an insurance card and vaccination card if coming for a second or booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Since Veterans Memorial Hospital is a health care facility, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) does require that masks are still to be worn by every patient and visitor to the hospital.

Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon also has a number of free COVID-19 testing kits and N-95 masks available and are giving these away free to the public. Stop by the main entrance of the Veterans Memorial Hospital or either the Medical Clinic in Waukon or Postville to pick up these free items.

For more information, call Veterans Memorial Hospital Allamakee Public Health at 563-568-5660.
