NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – People shopping at the Eastwood Mall had the chance to get their COVID-19 vaccine Saturday.
The Trumbull Combined Health District was giving out about 70 Moderna vaccines.
First News was told there was a line of about 20 people before the clinic opened at 1 p.m. They felt the mall was a good spot because of the amount of people going through.
First News also asked why they believe there has been a slowdown of people getting vaccines.
“I think the slowdown is because it’s readily available at a lot of places, at least 30 different places, in the county. We’re here. We’re not doing appointments, it’s just walk-ins,” said Kris Wilster of Trumbull Combined Health District.
“Well, I work at a grocery store, like in the public, so I felt it would probably be the best idea so I don’t get it,” said Brigette Schultz, who received the vaccine Saturday.
The clinic at the Eastwood Mall will be going on for the next six weeks.
