Immunization clinic to be held in East Waterford

MIFFLINTOWN – The Pennsylvania Department of Health is set to hold a public immunization clinic from 9-11 a.m. March 28 at Long’s Community Store, 9697 State Route 75, East Waterford.

Juniata County Commissioner Jeffrey Zimmerman announced the clinic during a Tuesday meeting of the board of commissioners. He said area residents who are underinsured or uninsured are eligible for vaccines at low or no cost. There is a maximum cost of $5, payable by check or money order.

Zimmerman said the type of vaccines available at the clinic were not specified in a press release. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the Department of Health at 527-4185.

Also during the meeting, the board:
