City of Dayton teams up with TANK, Health District for free bus rides to two free COVID-19 vaccine clinics

The City Dayton has teamed up with the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky and the Northern Kentucky Health District to get Dayton residents free bus transportation to and from two COVID-19 vaccine clinics in the City of Covington.

Both the vaccines and bus travel to and from the clinics are free of charge to Dayton residents. The two vaccine clinics are:
• A free, walk-in clinic for Pfizer vaccines is available to residents aged 12 and older at Healthpoint Family Care, 1401 Madison Ave., Covington, on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free bus vouchers to this vaccine clinic are available at the Dayton City Building, located 514 Sixth Avenue. The clinic will provide residents with a second bus voucher to return to Dayton after they receive the vaccination.

• A second clinic will be held this Saturday, Oct. 16, at the Holmes High School Fieldhouse, 2500 Madison Avenue, Covington, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. A free shuttle bus will run to and from Dayton and this clinic, leaving the City Building at hourly increments from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This clinic will provide Moderna and J&J vaccines to individuals 18 years and older and the Pfizer vaccine to individuals 12 years and older, including first and second doses as well as a third and booster doses for people who meet the eligibility criteria.

The vaccine clinic at Holmes High School is being hosted by NFL Alumni Cincinnati, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, the Health Department, and the Covington Independent Public Schools. Former Cincinnati Bengals Anthony Munoz, Jim Breech, David Fulcher, Solomon Wilcots, Robert Jackson, and David Wilkins will attend the event, which will have music, giveaways, and food.

“We recognize that some of our residents may not have access to available transportation or have flexibility in their work schedules to get the vaccine during the work week, so we are hopeful that they can take advantage of these opportunities to get the COVID-19 vaccine at these clinics,” Dayton Mayor Ben Baker said.

“We are grateful for the assistance of the Northern Kentucky Health Department, TANK, and the other vaccine clinic sponsors for their efforts to provide this opportunity to our residents and I encourage those residents who have not yet gotten the vaccine to take advantage of this opportunity.”
