Aspirus offering COVID-19 vaccine clinics in Ironwood

Aspirus Health is offering COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Thurdsay, June 3 from 8-4 p.m., at Aspirus Ironwood Clinic, N10565 Grand View Lane, Ironwood, MI 49938.

The clinic will offer the Pfizer vaccine, the only COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in adolescents and teens age 12-18.

“This clinic is a great opportunity for young teens who would like the COVID-19 to gain access,” said Sandra Maki, supervisor of Clinics for Aspirus Health. “We are excited to offer the vaccine to this age group.”

Vaccinations through the clinic are available by appointment only and will be limited.

To register, individuals can call the clinic at 906-932-1500 during business hours. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to have parental consent and have a parent present at the time of vaccination.

Aspirus urges everyone to sign up through any available vaccinator if they have yet to be vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing illness and the most severe symptoms associated with COVID-19. They also provide added protection against variant strains of COVID-19 which are on the rise.
