FEMA opening mass vaccination site in Louisiana capital city

A worker readies syringes with the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine Monday, March 29, 2021, at "Vaccine Fest," a 24-hour COVID-19 mass vaccination event in Metairie, La., just outside New Orleans, hosted by Ochsner Health System and the Jefferson Parish Government. Every adult in Louisiana over the age of 16 is now eligible to get vaccinated against the coronavirus as the state's expanded eligibility went into effect Monday.

GREENSBORO — The COVID-19 vaccine clinic at N.C. A&T will take walk-ins Thursday.

A&T's clinic is located in the Alumni-Foundation Event Center at 200 N. Benbow Road. The clinic will open at 10 a.m. and run through 5 p.m. or until no more vaccines are available.

The clinic is open to A&T students and employees as well as community members who have not already received a vaccine. A&T on Thursday will administer the Moderna vaccine, so persons receiving it must be at least 18 years old.

There's no cost to get a vaccine, and no proof of insurance is required to receive a shot.

A&T was the first UNC System school to open an on-campus vaccine clinic. The university has been giving out shots by appointment on Thursdays since mid-February.

But Thursday's clinic has more available doses than it has people signed up to take them, so the university opted to accept walk-in traffic. A university spokesman said Wednesday there should be about 400 extra doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
