[Akron, OH] – Summit County Public Health will be administering the Moderna vaccine at the Mass Vaccination Clinics at the Summit County Fairgrounds located at 1050 North Ave.,

The Moderna vaccine has an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) approval for ages 18 and over. The second dose appointments will be held on the identified dates at the same time as the
first dose. Due to this being a mass vaccination clinic there is no flexibility in scheduling the second dose appointment. Those individuals who are not able to attend their second dose
appointment should not proceed with receiving the first does from the mass vaccination clinic at the fairgrounds. “It remains a priority for us to vaccinate as many individuals as possible. With
the State’s support in providing FDA approved vaccine we will continue to vaccinate as planned” Donna Skoda, Health Commissioner, SCPH. Please visit
