Finke said PHMDC had a total of 611 scheduled appointments during the first week, but some ended up as no-shows.

PHMDC did not have data on the number of initial doses vs. booster doses administered, but Finke said staff members reported most patients said they were there for their booster shot.

The clinic is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Anyone ages 12 and up is eligible to get vaccinated at the clinic. Booster shots are only available for select populations.
