HENDERSONVILLE, N.C., (WSPA) – The COVID-19 vaccine clinic is moving back into the Blue Ridge Mall in Hendersonville.

Initial vaccination appointments, as well as booster shots, will be available starting September 1. The clinic is located at the old JCPenney site at the mall, 1800 Four Seasons Blvd.

Henderson County officials state that the clinic is reopening due to an increase in demand for the vaccine and to prepare for the booster patients within the next few months. This clinic site originally closed due to the decline of vaccine demand in the area.

The clinic will administer the first and second doses to all eligible people. Both Moderna (ages 18+) and Pfizer (ages 12+) will be offered at no cost.

They will also administer the booster to those who qualify under the CDC’s list of conditions. Starting the week of Sept. 20, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service announced they will begin to offer the booster to anyone who received their vaccine more than 8 months ago.

Walk-ins are welcome, but scheduling online or calling (828) 585-4700 is encouraged. The clinic will not be open on Labor Day.
