BURNHAM — The town of Burnham will hold a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic in the Town Office Monday, Aug. 23, according to an announcement today from the Maine Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Shots will be available at the Town Office, 247 S. Horseback Road, between the hours of 2 and 6 p.m.  Pfizer vaccine shots will be available to people 12 and older, and Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccine shots — the “one and done” vaccination — to those 18 and older. (Parental consent will be required for children aged 12 to 17.)

For those receiving the Pfizer vaccine, a date and time for the second dose will be scheduled during the clinic.

Sign up to schedule a time by calling the Burnham Town Office at 948-2369. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Sponsored by the town of Burnham, the clinic is being supported by the Maine CDC Division of Public Health Nursing and the Waldo County Emergency Management Agency. This is a free clinic — no insurance is needed.

For those attending the Union Fair, a second free clinic will be held Thursday, Aug. 26, in the restaurant building (near the racetrack) at the fair, 110 Fairgrounds Lane in Union, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

No appointment is needed, and those who get a shot will also get a free pass to the fair, good for one admission on Friday, Aug. 27, or Saturday the 28th.

The Union Fair clinic is supported by the Union Fair, the Union Ambulance Service, Knox County Emergency Management Agency and the Maine CDC Division of Public Health Nursing.
