If you're looking for an opportunity to get the free COVID-19 vaccine, there are several opportunities in Wilmington this month.
CarePort MD's mobile vax machine will vaccinate anyone 16 and older at the city's Grazin' in the Grass music events this month.
The first opportunity is tomorrow in Elbert Park in Southbridd at Townsend and C streets from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The vax machine will be at Herman Holloway park next Thursday, May 20, and at Haynes Park on May 27, both from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
With the COVID-19 virus still being a concern, Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki is encouraging all residents to get vaccinated at their first opportunity.
"The city will be able to move past the negative effects of the pandemic as more and more residents get vaccinated," he said.
