Barboursville — Residents will continue to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the new Vaccine Center in the former Sears Space of Huntington Mall.
The Vaccine Center, founded by the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, was established to deliver more COVID-19 vaccines at a faster pace. Vaccines are scheduled only by booking from an existing waiting list.
If the vaccine supply permits, this new vaccination site can be vaccinated up to 3,000 times a day.
The Vaccine Center also serves as the headquarters for vaccination delivery at the Cabell-Huntington Health Department. Other vaccination sites will continue to operate and additional new, smaller sites are planned to ensure prompt and equitable vaccination distribution.
The clinic operates in partnership with Marshall Health, Valley Health Systems, Marshall University, Wayne County Health Department, Cabell County EMS, and the Mountain Health Network, which includes Cabell Huntington Hospital, St Mary’s Medical Center, and HIMG.
The Cabell-Huntington Health Department recently received a $ 1.07 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the administration and distribution of vaccines.

In Ohio, outdoor and indoor sports and entertainment venues can be reopened with limited attendance, based on rules announced Thursday by Governor Mike DeWine. He also said that guidance for proms, banquets, wedding receptions, trade fairs, festivals and parades is coming soon.
Depending on the progress of the coronavirus pandemic this spring and summer, attendance restrictions may be further relaxed, but may also be restricted if things get worse due to coronavirus variants. The governor said there was.
According to DeWine, outdoor venues can be reopened with up to 30% capacity and indoor venues can be reopened with 25% capacity. The governor said social distance and continuous masking are the keys to making these restrictions work.
“The goal is for all of us to return to where we want to be, our pre-pandemic life,” Dewin said.
The Republican governor called this measure a “bridge” to return to normal life, but it is based on vaccination and continues to follow safety protocols such as wearing masks.
The Governor also announced that the state’s two veterans’ homes had reopened new admissions almost a year later. The state has also lifted restrictions on visits to state behavioral health care facilities.
