Press release from Asheville City Schools
Asheville City Schools will be hosting a COVID-19 vaccination clinic TOMORROW, Thursday, Aug. 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. In partnership with Buncombe County Health & Human Services and StarMed (a state mobile vaccine provider), the no-cost, walk-up clinic will be held under the walkway near the main office of Montford North Star Academy, located at 90 Montford Avenue.
The Pfizer vaccine will be available.
We apologize for the late notice, but when the opportunity presented itself to host a vaccine clinic prior to the first day of school, we were quick to take it —especially after our local health department shared earlier today that our county’s positivity rate is up to 8.5%.
Vaccinations are the “leading public health prevention strategy to end the COVID-19 pandemic.” So, we’re highly encouraging all North Carolinians, especially those that are part of the cougar family ages 12 and up who have not received the vaccine, to make plans to attend tomorrow’s clinic.
However, if someone is unable to attend but would like to know when other upcoming vaccine events are occurring across Buncombe County, click here.
