On Oct. 7 and Oct. 8, the Community Vaccination Center on St. Thomas will close at 1 p.m. Distribution for the $250 gift cards will also end at 1 p.m.

Also, on Oct. 18, the center on St. Croix will operate from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Oct. 22, the center on St. Thomas will operate from 8 a.m. 2 p.m. This temporary change in hours of operation will allow staff to attend a mandatory training to better serve the community.
