Mercy Hospital announces new walk-in vaccination location
Beginning tomorrow, Northern Light Pharmacy
, located in the medical office building on Northern Light Mercy Hospital’s campus on Fore River Parkway, will begin offering COVID-19 vaccinations on a walk-in basis. The pharmacy is offering these walk-in vaccinations during normal business hours, which are 9 am – 7 pm Monday through Friday and 9 am – 5 pm on Saturdays.
Mercy Hospital also announced updates to its COVID-19 vaccination program at the Portland Expo. Beginning next week, the Portland Expo vaccination clinic will transition to accepting walk-ins on Wednesdays and Fridays. Previously, it was open to walk-ins Tuesday through Friday. This change is being made to reflect the changes in demand for vaccinations overall and volumes at the Expo clinic, which was designed to be a mass vaccination site.
To date, the clinic at the Expo has provided over 35,000 vaccine doses. Northern Light Mercy Hospital remains committed to working with the state and local communities as the vaccination process moves forward, including reaching out directly to schools to provide vaccinations to eligible students.
