COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

Columbia/ Boone County Public Health and Human Services will be holding a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinic from 10 a.m until 1 p.m. on Saturday at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Columbia.

The services will be free and walk-ins are welcome. No appointments are needed.

Health Officials say, people will be able to get any dose in a series ,including booster shots and will not need an I.D or health insurance to do so. Organizers also say although Moderna is available for people ages 6 months to 17 years old, they are only administering Pfizer for that age group on Saturday.

This means, anyone 6 months or older will be eligible for Pfizer. However anyone age 18 and older is eligible for Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson.

Parental consent forms are required for anyone under the age of 18 attending the clinic Saturday.

This comes as multiple counties including Boone, are at high transmission community levels for COVID-19.

According to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services website most recent data, there are currently 1,83 patients in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those hospitalized 129 are in ICU.

The state's website also show there have been over 13,000 cases in the past week. Most of those cases are people age 25 to 44.
