Vaccination: MMH is offering a COVID-19 Booster Clinic Thursday, October 7, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Batesville Street Department located at 514 John Street. This clinic is for existing patients of Margaret Mary Health. The single booster dose can only be administered at least six months after completion of the second dose and applies only to those who previously received the Pfizer vaccine. Please bring your COVID-19 vaccination card with you. No appointment is necessary at the clinic; however, we suggest you be prepared for longer wait times as we will be registering patients when they arrive.
