Wayne Health Dept. has free vaccines, test kits

As of May 11, the federal government has declared the end of the public health emergency. And while some benefits and funding related to the COVID-19 pandemic may go away for citizens and entities, the Wayne County Health Department will continue to offer COVID-19 vaccines and COVID-19 at-home test kits at no charge to any resident of Wayne County.

“We are in a better place with COVID-19 in knowing how to stop the spread and to mitigate the virus much more so now than we did three years ago. The best way to prevent getting or at least getting very sick from COVID-19 is by getting vaccinated against it,” said Patty Reining, RN, director of community health for the Wayne County Health Department.

The Wayne County Health Department offers walk-in clinics with no appointment necessary to get the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. at the clinic at 203 S. Walnut St. in Wooster. People also can pick up a free COVID-19 test kit anytime during normal business hours at either the clinic office at 203 S. Walnut or the environmental office at 428 W. Liberty in Wooster. It is advisable to call before you come to get a test kit as inventory fluctuates.
