The City of Claremont is bringing the coronavirus vaccine to town with an inoculation clinic next week.
The city is partnering with Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to offer the vaccine to 150 residents on Wednesday, April 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hughes Community Center. There will be a walk-up clinic outside on the basketball courts adjacent to the Hughes Center. Please note, this is not a drive-thru event, residents will be required to park and walk. Appointments are required, and as of Monday April 5, about 100 spots were still available.
The clinic is open to Los Angeles County residents age 50 or older and individuals age 16 and older with a chronic health condition that increases their risk for serious COVID-19 illness. A wait list will be started after the 150 doses are reserved.
City officials do not know which vaccine will be available, so if either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine is administered, the city will hold a second dose clinic four weeks later for the same individuals who received the first shot.
Appointments can be made by calling the Joslyn Center at (909) 399-5488 during regular business hours, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
