TomTreyco McDonald's, Stark County Health Department and SARTA join forces for mobile vaccination clinics on June 1

(Jackson Twp., OH) – TomTreyco McDonald’s, the Stark County Health Department, and SARTA are joining forces to host eight mobile vaccination clinics around Stark County on Tuesday, June 1. The SARTA buses will serve as the vaccination clinic and will setup in the parking lots at eight McDonald’s locations. After receiving their shot, residents will receive a free meal from McDonald’s. No appointment is necessary for these clinics and only a form of identification is needed. 
 
"At the end of the day we are a people business here at McDonald’s, we just happen to sell hamburgers. We are always delighted at the opportunity to help support our communities and neighbors, which is why partnering with SARTA and the Stark County Health Department to host the mobile vaccination sites at our restaurants felt like the right thing to do,” said Trey Locke, local McDonald’s Owner/Operator.
 
The Stark County Health Department will be administering Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at the clinics. This is the only vaccine approved for residents 12 years of age and older. Those that are minors, 12 to 17 years of age, must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian to their vaccine appointment. The parent or legal guardian must sign a consent form upon checking in at the clinics.
 
“These mobile clinics show the best of our county coming together to help one another,” said Stark County Health Commissioner Kirkland Norris, RS, MPH. “Our department appreciates the support to make the vaccine accessible to our residents to help protect them against this virus.”
 
There will be two SARTA buses carrying nurses from the Stark County Health Department on separate routes that each begin at 8:30 a.m. and go until 3:30 p.m. for those still needing their vaccine. Those having the vaccine administered will receive their shot on the bus and then can enjoy their free meal inside McDonald’s. Second doses will be given on June 22 at the same McDonald’s where those residents received their first shot. SARTA has worked with the health departments throughout the pandemic to help get residents to the clinics across the county and offered incentives to riders who showed their vaccination cards.
 
“SARTA is all about getting people where they need to go, but in this case, we’re partnering up to help bring the vaccine to the people,” said SARTA CEO, Kirt Conrad. “The most important thing right now is to get Stark County moving again while keeping everyone safe. In providing a mobile vaccine clinic we’re increasing that accessibility even more and working with these partners to assist the community in getting there.”Mobile vaccination clinics locations and times:
