Northern Light Walk-In Care in Waterville to offer Walk-In COVID-19 Vaccinations
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Northern Light Inland Hospital has adapted care and service to meet the needs of our communities. As COVID-19 vaccines became available, we moved quickly to offer vaccinations at a central location, designed to deliver vaccine to as many people as possible as quickly as possible. With over half of Maine’s eligible population vaccinated, it is time we shift our approach to ensure that those who have not had the opportunity to be vaccinated can now do so.
While we have offered pop-up clinics in underserved communities and have been providing personal vaccinations to our homebound community members, we’re looking to expand vaccination opportunities for those who were unable to travel to our larger vaccination sites.
Starting on Monday, May 17, Northern Light Walk-In Care, located at 174 Kennedy Memorial Drive in Waterville, will offer walk-in Moderna COVID-19 vaccination between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm, seven days a week for anyone 18 years and older. You do not need to be a current patient, and no appointment is necessary.
Our large-scale vaccination clinic, located at Kennebec Valley Community College in Fairfield, will begin tapering hours and days in the coming weeks, with a tentative final day of operation on Friday, June 4, based on demand.
We want to thank Kennebec Valley Community College, all our volunteers, and our community for making COVID-19 vaccinations a success. This has been a team effort for the health of our communities.
