JAMESTOWN — The Chautauqua County Department of Health is holding a COVID-19 vaccination clinic Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mental Health Association’s Jamestown location in the Gateway Center, Door 14, 31 Water St.

This is a walk-in clinic. No appointment is necessary.

The Johnson & Johnson one-shot vaccine will be administered to anyone aged 16 and older.

Everyone who gets vaccinated receives a coupon of their choice for McDonald’s french fries, sundae, or quarter pounder.

With current outbreaks in Jamestown and Dunkirk, there will also be a free screening for hepatitis A. This vaccine-preventable liver infection is spread by close personal contact with an infected person or through contaminated food or drink. Anyone can be scheduled for a hepatitis A vaccination. Those testing positive will be connected with treatment.

Peer recovery coaches will be available to answer questions and share information about services provided by the MHA as well as how to access other mental health and substance use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery services in Chautauqua County.

Free Narcan and Narcan training-that takes less than 10 minutes-will be available during the clinic.

Narcan is the brand name for naloxone, a safe medication that has saved hundreds of lives in Chautauqua County. Narcan can be administered as a nasal spray by a first responder or friend, family member or bystander to someone who is experiencing an overdose of an opioid, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, or heroin.

With programs in both Jamestown and Dunkirk, the Mental Health Association in Chautauqua County is a peer recovery center offering support groups and individual coaching for people looking to improve their lives, deepen wellness, thrive in recovery, or support those on a recovery path. Peers use their personal stories to help people find recovery in their own lives in their own way.

All Mental Health Association services are free.
