SAYRE, Pa. (WETM) – Guthrie announced Thursday that a public COVID-19 vaccine clinic for residents 65 and older will be open at the former K-Mart building on Elmira Street in Sayre.
The new clinic will serve approximately 500 patients per day from Pennsylvania and New York and each appointment will take 20 to 30 minutes. After the announcement Thursday morning, all appointments were filled in 2-hours.
Due to a limited supply of vaccine, only residents age 65 or older can schedule an appointment to get the vaccine at this time. Dr. Joseph Scopelliti, CEO and President of Guthrie, said they are distributing the vaccines as soon as they receive them.
Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are administered at this location and the injection fee is covered by most insurance providers.
The clinic is not open to patients 16-64 years-old who have pre-existing conditions at this time.
Clinic eligibility in the future will be expanded upon receiving additional shipments of the vaccine.
Clinic hours of operation for this wave of vaccination will be as follows:
- Friday, January 22: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Saturday, January 23: 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
- Sunday, January 24: 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
- Monday, January 25: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Tuesday, January 26: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
