Entrance change made for county vaccination clinic

LISBON — Those attending vaccination clinics at the Columbiana County Fairgrounds this week and next are going to be asked to use the gate B to enter.

Gate B is the lower gate, farther east on Lee Street than the main gate where people have been entering for prior vaccinations at the Columbiana County Vaccination Complex in the fairgrounds.

According to mass vaccination coordinator Laura Fauss, the main gate is being used during the next two weeks by the fair board for their equipment auction, forcing the change in traffic pattern for the vaccinations. The new entrance and path to drive to get to the vaccination complex will be marked with yellow signs.

Fauss said the Columbiana County Health Department will have three clinics this week. The first dose clinic is today, which is re-scheduled from last Friday, when doses did not arrive in time due to the ice storm. There will be a second dose clinic Thursday at the Career Center in conjunction with county Board of Developmental Disabilities. Finally, there will be another second dose clinic Friday at the fairgrounds.

Pending the arrival of additional vaccines in the coming weeks, the health department is hoping to get caught back up on the vaccines by extending the drive-up clinic or by hosting additional clinics. Reservations will be taken when more doses are available. At that time, the numbers to register are 330-692-2210 and 330-429-5133 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
