Coronavirus Vaccine

The state of Mississippi is currently giving COVID-19 immunizations for the following :

  • All Healthcare Workers and EMT / paramedics
  • Persons 65 years of age or older
  • NEW - Persons aged 16 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine, and those 18 and over can receive the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

As the state receives its COVID-19 vaccine allocations, MSDH will be providing COVID-19 vaccinations based on the current phase(s).  This site will be used to schedule your vaccine appointment at an MSDH Vaccination Drive Through facility. Click here to schedule an appointment...

Vaccinations

Local vaccine availability: A limited amount of COVID-19 vaccine has been distributed to healthcare providers around the state, including hospitals, community health centers and local health clinics. If you are eligible for vaccination, you can contact one of these providers for an appointment, especially if travel to a drive-through site is difficult, or if you have a history of allergic reaction that prevents you from being vaccinated at a drive-through site.

Drive-through vaccinations: Continued high demand for first and second dose vaccinations means that available appointments may be limited. New vaccination appointment openings are being added several time as week, though. If you are having trouble finding an available appointment, check back regularly for new openings.

Remember that your second dose appointment can be made on or after 21 days (for Pfizer vaccine) or 28 days (Moderna) from your first vaccination. The best time to look for a second dose appointment is about two weeks after your first dose.

Adults 65 and over, and those ages 18-64 with certain chronic health conditions are now eligible for vaccination at drive-through sites in addition to healthcare personnel and those aged 75 and over.

Protect Yourself and Others

Wear a mask in public places

All Mississippi residents should wear non-medical grade masks or homemade cloth face coverings when shopping, running errands, or otherwise away from home. Face covering is especially important when a distance of at least 6 feet cannot easily be maintained between persons. This recommendation does not include manufactured (surgical) or N95 masks, which should be reserved for healthcare workers and first responders.

Face coverings are now required in certain counties. More information »

YMCA
We have had to close our gym facilities to help keep our members safe during this time, especially our senior members.

The staff have been calling our Senior members and checking on them. We have been finding out if they need any assistance or if there are things they may need that the Y can provide for them. We are trying to keep contact at least twice a week.

The Clinton YMCA is the headquarters for the YMCA Food Program. We have 6-8 sites that we serve free meals to any child 18 and younger during the Summer Time. One of the sites is at the Clinton Y on the front porch. During this time of need we have started our Summer Feeding Program early.

The program started on March 23rd and will last until the Schools resume back. We offer free meals Monday through Friday 12 pm to 1 pm. Because of the current situation we are providing a grab n go method. The other locations are at Westside Park, Grove Park, Battlefield Park and Vergy P. Middleton Park in Jackson.

We have opened our Childcare center to full day service during this time. We have spots available. Hours are 7 am to 6 pm. Children receive am snack, a lunch and a pm snack. The childcare staff are tutoring the children and scheduling school work time so the children can make sure to stay on top of their work. The price is $107 for Y members and $137 for non Y members.
