This no-appointment walk-in clinic will provide Pfizer second doses to those vaccinated on or before May 29, the department said Tuesday.

Students with both doses of the Pfizer vaccine will not be quarantined out of school or sports if they are exposed to Covid-19 unless they show symptoms.

Moderna vaccines will also be available for those age 18 an older who would like it and those who are at or past their 28th day to receive a second dose of vaccine.
