Parkview Health is moving its COVID-19 vaccine clinic from the Parkview Mirro Center for Research and Innovation to a nearby location.

The Parkview Mirro Center clinic will continue operations through June 28. The new clinic opens July 1 at 3718 New Vision Drive, Building C, on the Parkview Regional Medical Center campus.

“We are extremely proud of all that our vaccine clinic team has accomplished at the Parkview Mirro Center for Research and Innovation, providing more than 130,000 shots since we opened the clinic on Dec. 14. It took world-class teamwork, innovation and dedication to run the clinic, which at one point gave an average of 1,200 shots per day,” said Michelle Charles, vice president, nursing informatics, Parkview Health, in a news release. “As vaccination rates slow, we are moving to a location that will better fit our needs. We’re also partnering with organizations throughout the area to provide pop-up clinics, creating greater access to vaccines and protecting more people in our community.”
