Southcoast Health is now offering walk-up options for anyone seeking a COVID-19 vaccination.

You do not need to be a Southcoast Health patient in order to get a shot. All clinics and mobile units will be offering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“Getting your shot is more convenient and more important than ever,” said Tonya Johnson, RN, Vice President of Operations for Southcoast Hospitals Group. “All available vaccines are safe and effective. They’re our best chance at conquering COVID-19 once and for all. When we protect ourselves, we’re protecting our family, friends, and co-workers. Together, we’re protecting the SouthCoast community. We are grateful for all who have stepped up to help in this effort.”
