Beginning Thursday, children can receive the vaccine at the Allen County Memorial Coliseum vaccination site. Due to an anticipated high-volume, children can only be vaccinated by appointment only.

 

And beginning on Saturday, children can receive the vaccine by appointment at Super Shot on Hobson Road.
