Hy-Vee hosting a vaccination clinic at NLBM March 22
Hy-Vee will be hosting a COVID-19 vaccination clinic March 22 at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum at 1616 E. 18th St. The clinic will run from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and appointments must be made in shifts. There are vaccination appointments between 9-10:30 a.m., the 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m., 12-1:30 p.m., and 1:30-3 p.m. Appointments must be made online prior to the event through the time slot-specific links.
The goal of the partnership between Hy-Vee and the NLBM is to vaccinate community members who live in and around the 18th and Vine district through weekly clinics. All who qualify under Missouri’s current stage of vaccination are able to make an appointment at the clinic.
Those eligible include those 65 years of age and older; adults with cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD, heart conditions, weakened immune systems due to organ transplant, severe obesity, sickle cell disease, type 2 diabetes, Mellitus, and severe developmental disabilities; those who are pregnant; and those who work in the communications, dams, energy, food and agriculture, government, and information technology sectors. Also able to get vaccinated are Pre-K through 12th-grade teachers and staff, childcare center workers, family childcare providers, and Head Start and Early Head Start staff members.
