COVID-19

Salvation Army vaccine clinic planned for Tuesday

The clinic will feature the new, one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The Family Health Center is teaming up with the Salvation Army to hold a COVID-19 vaccination event on Tuesday in Kalamazoo. The clinic will be held at the Salvation Army’s main office on Burdick St.

It will be the first major push using the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine that was approved for emergency use last month. The J&J vaccine is notable because it only requires one shot for full immunity.
