The public is advised that pop up clinic sites located at The Market and Farmer’s Market on St. Croix and at Cost U Less on St. Thomas will be discontinued as of March 31.

The pop up on St. John at the Virgin Islands Port Authority Gravel Lot will continue from 1-4 p.m., Wednesdays until further notice.

Vaccines will be available at the Community Vaccine Centers on St. Thomas and St. Croix.

For the remainder of this week (March 23 – 25) the Community Vaccine Center (CVC) on St. Croix will continue operations at the Nissan Center in La Grande Princesse, adjacent to the Honda Dealership and The Paint Shop, on the same side of the street as Food Town. Vaccines at this center are available to all age groups.

On March 28, the St. Croix CVC will move to the Charles Harwood Memorial Complex.

At this new location the CVC will operate Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will continue to make vaccines and boosters available to all age groups. Because this new location is a smaller setting, appointments for vaccines/boosters are strongly encouraged.

On St. Thomas, persons seeking vaccines or boosters (for either teens or adults) are advised to go to the Community Vaccine Center (CVC) located at the Community Health Clinic on the 2nd floor at the Schneider Regional Medical Center.

Parents seeking pediatric vaccines for their children age 5 to 11 on St. Thomas can obtain vaccines at the Maternal, Child Health Clinic in the Elanco Building on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appointments are strongly encouraged and can be made by calling 777-8227. Parents or guardians need to bring identification for themselves and the child as well as the child’s birth certificate.

Please telephone 777-8227 or visit www.covid19usvi.com/vaccines to schedule an appointment.

Walk-ins are also accepted at each of the Community Vaccination Centers.
