“Getting vaccinated and taking commonsense steps, like wearing a mask when indoors in public places, can help keep you safe and healthy this holiday season,” said Governor Janet Mills.
Maine has the third highest rate of fully vaccinated residents, with nearly 73 percent of Maine people fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the U.S. CDC. Maine also ranks third among states for the percentage of residents aged 65 and older who are fully vaccinated, at 96.9 percent.
The clinic is a joint mission among the Maine CDC, Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and Maine National Guard.
