Community COVID vaccines available Friday at Lynn Meadows

Community COVID vaccines are available Friday at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center in Gulfport.

Singing River Health System, Ochsner and Lynn Meadows partnered up to set up a vaccination event tomorrow afternoon from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Pfizer vaccines are available for children 12 and older with adult consent and Johnson and Johnson vaccines are available for anyone 18 and older.

Lynn Meadows will be offering free Chick-Fil-A and pizza to guests and gift bags for the first 50 shots in arms. Lynn Meadows Discovery Center Executive Director Cindy DeFrances said, “The first 50 people who come to get a vaccination will receive a gift bag and in the gift bag they’ll receive a t-shirt that says they’ve been vaccinated safely at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center. There will be some other little goodies in there including a little pop fidget so in case somebody comes with a little bit of nerves they’ll have something to play with.”

The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center vaccine event is part of communities for immunity and made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
