WILLMAR Kandiyohi County Public Health has announced six clinics to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the next month.

Many people who have not received a COVID-19 vaccination are still vulnerable, according to a release from Public Health. Vaccines teach people’s bodies to fight the infection and are the exit strategy from the pandemic. People 12 and older are eligible for the vaccine. The shots are free, and no insurance is required.

Appointments can be made for the clinics online at kcmn.us/covid-19. Walk-ins are also welcome.

At the Willmar Education and Arts Center, 611 Fifth St. S.W., Willmar, Public Health has two clinics scheduled on Wednesdays in June, from 1 to 2 p.m. on June 23 and June 20. Please enter the clinic from the WEAC parking lot.
