September 14, 2021 - The McIntosh County Health Department will hold a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Thursday, Sept. 23, at the health department on Hwy. 57 in Townsend. The Moderna vaccine, approved for ages 18 and older, will be offered from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Pfizer vaccine, approved for ages 12 and older, will be offered from 3 to 6:30 p.m.

As a reminder, the Moderna vaccine is available at the health department every Thursday.
