People in the Omaha area can get COVID-19 vaccine shots this week at clinics around town.
The shots are free.
The Pfizer vaccine is approved for youths ages 5-17. People age 18 and younger must have a parent or guardian present when getting the shot.
Walk-ins are welcome at the clinics, but people also can register for appointments at https://login.registermytime.com/douglascountyhealthdepartment/generalpopulation.
People also can get tested for COVID at area pharmacies, clinics and test sites. Nomi Health announced Monday that its COVID-19 testing sites in Omaha now accept people by appointment only. Those who need a test must pre-register at nomihealth.com/nebraska/ and have secured an appointment. When people arrive at the sites, they should have a QR code on their phone, or printed out, with an appointment time.
