A vaccine clinic will be held this Friday at the old Dillard’s location in the Southern Park Mall. They have 1,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine.

It runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Appointments were still available as of 7 p.m. Thursday. Visit Mahoning County Public Health’s website to schedule one.

For the first time, the clinic is also setting aside 75 doses for walk-ins. Tekac hopes this draws more people in to get vaccinated.
