**Former KC Chiefs star, Will Shields will sign autographs Friday for those getting vaccinated.**
With COVID-19 cases rising and flu season right around the corner, the best time to get vaccinated against both illnesses is NOW. The Mid America Immunization Coalition (MAIC), a program of Nurture KC, is offering both vaccines at all clinics and supporting underserved communities. The clinics are free and open to the public with Walgreens providing the immunizations. The vaccine clinic schedule is online on Nurture KC’s web site. All clinics will accept walk-ups or people can schedule appointments.
“We are excited for our clinic this Friday, Sept. 17 at the Salvation Army where Will Shields will be signing autographs (from 5 to 6 p.m.) for anyone getting immunized or bringing proof that they have been vaccinated. We’re thrilled to have him involved, as he is such a positive force for good and respected community leader,” says Tracy Russell, Executive Director of Nurture KC.
This Friday’s clinic is offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which is two doses and available for those ages 12 and older. Our partner, El Centro, will also have tamales, corn on the cob, snow cones and prizes, such as QuikTrip gift cards, for those who get vaccinated.
