On Nov. 9, the St. Mary's County Health Department offered a free vaccination clinic to all community members of St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Individuals who registered received either the Covid-19 bivalent booster and/or the Monkeypox vaccine. During the clinic, 53 Bivalent boosters and seven Monkeypox vaccines were administered at the Wellness Center. Deborah Bello, registered nurse and director of health services at the College, shared that there was so much interest generated by Wednesday’s event that they plan to offer another clinic in the near future. Because the Monkeypox vaccine is a series of two doses, the health department will return on Dec. 7 to offer the second dose.
