CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper Natrona County Health Department is holding drive-through vaccine clinics at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds on November 16 and 18 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

They have Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson and now have a different Pfizer dose for kids ages five to 11. They have administered over 100 of these vaccines. Anna Kinder, the CNCHD Executive Director, said kids aren’t getting side effects like adults. “People have a very sore arm but no additional concerns,” Kinder said.

Kinder adds she’s excited to report that 40 percent of the community is vaccinated. “We’ve been hanging at 39 percent for a really long time. I’m excited to see that and hopefully get on the other side,” Kinder said.

At previous clinics, they’ve provided the flu shot too. Now they are out and Kinder suggests getting it from a health provider or pharmacy.
