Heritage Discovery Center

The Johnstown Area Heritage Association (JAHA) is partnering with the Highlands Health Clinic to host a COVID vaccine clinic! Pediatric, first-dose, second-dose, and booster Pfizer vaccines will be available to any member of the public, free of charge. What’s more, anyone who receives a vaccine at the clinic will receive a free pass to the Heritage Discovery Center/Johnstown Children’s Museum that can be used on any day.

The clinic will be held in the Iron & Steel Theater of the Heritage Discovery Center, which has plenty of room for people to socially distance indoors while waiting in line. After registration, vaccines will be administered in a special private room above the Galliker’s Café. Everyone who receives a vaccine will be provided with a pass to the museum, and children will also receive one extra pass for their accompanying parent/guardian. Highlands Health Clinic has arranged for a service dog to visit with the children while they wait. Volunteers from In This Together Cambria will help present activities such as coloring pages and crafts. Museum passes may be used immediately following the vaccine administration, or on a future day.

Advance registration is online and strongly encouraged to expedite the registration process — walk-ins will also be accepted as doses permit. Pfizer vaccines will be available for ages 5 and up. Curbside vaccinations are available as well as pre-vaccination topical lidocaine.

Children and adults who receive their first Pfizer shot on Dec. 4 will be invited back to the Heritage Discovery Center for a follow-up clinic on Thurs., Jan. 6, from 5:00-7:00 pm, where they will complete the two-shot series.

Booster vaccines are now available to anyone over the age of 18 who received their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna more than six months ago, and for anyone over 18 who received Johnson & Johnson more than two months ago. According to the Center for Disease Control, people over the age of 50 or who are 18 and older with extenuating health conditions or concerns are especially encouraged to get their booster shots.
