”I think it’s a great opportunity for people to come to a place where they might already be running errands, especially now with the holiday season, they can be Christmas shopping and can pop in and get a vaccine,” said Eliason.

People have the option to get any of the three vaccines, Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson and Johnson.
