Pat Moore, with the Chester County, Pa., Health Department, fills a syringe with Moderna COVID-19 vaccine before administering it to emergency medical workers and healthcare personnel at the Chester County Government Services Center, Dec. 29, 2020.

Clay County announced on Tuesday it will be giving residents 65 and older and health care workers COVID-19 vaccines by appointment, starting Monday, Jan. 4.

Sign up now for a Clay County appointment.

All appointments will be at the UF/IFAS Extension T. Jesse Godbold Building at 2463 S.R. 16 West in Green Cove Springs.

Vaccination appointments will be available in 15-minute increments from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Clay County residents must have an appointment and show ID or proof of healthcare employment to receive the no-cost vaccination.

Two vaccinations are required to obtain immunity to COVID-19. Recipients will need to schedule a second appointment at Alert.ClayCountyGov.com.

At the same time, appointment slots to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Jacksonville are opening at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 28.

As vaccines start to become available, the Health Department has this reminder for people who are not yet vaccinated: Continue to socially distance and avoid large crowds, wear face coverings outside your home and wash your hands often.
