Jerome COVID clinic vaccinates 314 people
JEROME - In the shadow of Jerome’s historic copper mines, Yavapai County residents 18-and-older received COVID-19 vaccinations at Spectrum Healthcare’s first outdoor mobile vaccine clinic Wednesday.
“Three-hundred-fourteen people fully-vaccinated,” explained Jerome Police Allen Muma. “More than they expected.”
“People came from all over,” continued Muma. “There were some people from Prescott, Sedona, and of course a lot of Jerome, Camp Verde, Cottonwood, Clarkdale.”
Spectrum Healthcare administered Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine at the 300 Level parking lot with the assistance of Jerome Fire Department EMTs. Jerome Fire and Police departments took the vaccine to homebound individuals.
“All I heard was positive comments,” Muma said of the event which he said went very smoothly.
Mayor Jack Dillenberg greeted everyone driving to the event at the Jerome firehouse near the parking lot.
However, what was missing on Wednesday were the ominous highway signs put up by the town during the pandemic, which warned visitors to wear masks.
Jerome is in one of its busy seasons right now and tourists filled the streets on Wednesday, while at the same time residents headed to their vaccine event.
