Cindy Fisher of Brookfield was up in the air about whether to get a COVID-19 vaccine, but her 14-year-old daughter, Madisyn, had no reservations.
“I just felt like it was the right thing to do,” Madisyn said.
Madisyn received her first Pfizer vaccine dose at a Trumbull County Combined Health District vaccination clinic held June 9 at Brookfield Township Community Park, 7291 Stewart Sharon Road
District officials said they wanted to hold a clinic in Brookfield to make it easier for people to get the vaccine, and Cindy Fisher was thankful to not have to travel far.
“Super convenient,” she said.
The Fishers plan to return to the park July 7, when the district holds a clinic to give second shots of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. The one-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine also will be available.
Shots will be given from 4 to 7 p.m.
The first clinic attracted 33 people, said Jenna Amerine, grant coordinator for the health district.
Brookfield Youth Baseball and Softball Inc. will be running a tournament July 7 at the park, but agreed to cordon off a section of parking lot and close the concession stand while the clinic is going on.
For more information or to register early, go to the district’s website at www.tcchd.org. Walk-ins will be welcome, and there are no residency requirements to get a shot.
