Over the last 16 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused some children and teens fall behind on their vaccination schedules.
Lincoln Medical Partners in Damariscotta will be hosting ‘catch up’ vaccination clinics for patients up to age 20 from 8 a.m. to noon on five consecutive Saturdays – July 31 and Aug. 7, 14, 21 and 28 – at the Watson Health Center at 24 Miles Center Way.
Along with the vaccines that are regularly recommended for children and teens based on a schedule, the COVID-19 vaccine will also be available to patients age 12 and up.
You do not need to be a Lincoln Medical Partners’ patient to participate, and all insurances with the exception of TriCare are accepted.
Patients can walk in during the clinic hours, but it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment if possible. You can reach Lincoln Medical Partners by calling 563-4250.
Contact your provider if you have questions about your children’s and teens’ vaccination status. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers good information on vaccine schedules at https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent.html and how to get caught up at https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/catchup.html.
