Fruit Valley Community Learning Center vaccine pod will include youth shots

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County Public Health will host a vaccine pod today at the Fruit Valley Community Learning Center with Pfizer doses available to anyone 12 and older. One-dose vaccines from Johnson & Johnson will also be available as an option for those age 16 and older.

Those 12 to 15 years old will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The pod, at 3410 N.W. Fruit Valley Road, Vancouver, will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. by appointment and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. without an appointment, while vaccine supply lasts.

You can book an appointment online or call 888-225-4625 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Messages will be returned as soon as possible. Language assistance is available. Online appointments are linked on Clark County Public Health’s website.

The pod is primarily to give second doses to people who received a first dose at the Learning Center on April 24. Those who receive a first-dose at the pod today will need to schedule a second dose at another location, such as the Tower Mall site in Vancouver. Public Health will pass out flyers that will let people know where they can get a second dose.
