KC CARE is hosting a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic next Wednesday, March 31, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Don Bosco Community Center, 526 Campbell Street in Columbus Park.

Northeast residents now qualify for Phase 2 since the area is a disproportionately under-vaccinated community, according to KC CARE.

“We are grateful that we have the opportunity to help out in a time of need,”  said Liz Zini, Don Bosco Community Center director. “Don Bosco has a history of adapting to help serve those in our neighborhood and the entire historic Northeast.  The more people we can vaccinate, the better.”

In April, weekly vaccinations will happen on Tuesdays. As of now, vaccines are administered by appointment only.

Northeast and Columbus Park residents can sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040d4aa4ad29a5f58-3312021. Prior to arrival, those with appointments are asked to fill out the demographic form in English or Spanish. Forms will be available in both languages on site to those who need them.

Those with appointments should bring the completed form, photo ID and insurance card, if applicable, to the appointment, where they will fill out an additional vaccine consent on site.

“People should park in our parking lot, on the street, or if needed, we have permission to use the parking lot for Holy Rosary Catholic Church which is across the street,” Zini said. “They will enter through our main entrance on the east doors that face Campbell Street. There will be clear signage that will direct people where to go.”

They may have extra doses at the end of the day. For those interested in being added to the extra dose list, email covidvaccine@kccare.org. Include “extra dose Don Bosco” as the subject and provide name and phone number in the body of the message. We will not leave a message and will call between 2:30 and 3:30 if doses are available. Those called must be able to arrive within 30 minutes of the call.

For information regarding COVID-19 vaccines visit the KC CARE website at http://kccare.org/covidvaccine/.

More information will be available following the first clinic, and The Northeast News will continue to update this article.
