Fayette health department COVID numbers stable, two clinics next week

The Pfizer shot for people 12 and older will be available from 12:30-3:30 p.m. June 2, at Consolidated Baptist Church, 1625 Russell Cave Road.
The department will contact people about scheduling their second dose. Learn more about adolescents and the vaccine at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/vaccines/toolkits/COVID-19-Vaccine-for-Preteens_Teens-508.pdf.
