COVID vaccine will be available this week at clinics around Omaha

Overall, the state continued a monthlong flattening of its delta surge. But one notable change: The CDC added 399 COVID-related deaths that it apparently hadn't previously counted in Nebraska's tally.

The Douglas County Health Department again is offering the COVID-19 vaccine for free at clinics across the city this week, and no appointment is necessary.

People ages 12 to 17 are eligible to take the Pfizer vaccine. Those ages 12 to 18 must have a parent or guardian present.

People also can get shots at other locations around the Omaha area, including grocery stores and pharmacies.

Walk-ins are welcome, officials said, but those who want to get a COVID booster shot may go online at https://login.registermytime.com/douglascountyhealthdepartment/generalpopulation to sign up for an appointment.
