“We feel privileged to partner with our local health experts by providing a facility for the vaccination clinic,” said Branson Superintendent Brad Swofford in the press release. “The High School Activities Center has its own parking lot and sits on the High School campus, near the football field. The site, and the facility, has its own entrance and exit from the main campus making traffic flow easier for those visiting the vaccination clinic. We are pleased to be a part of this endeavor to better the health of our community.”Individuals interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine can submit their information online to be placed on the list for vaccination. Once eligible and vaccine is available, individuals will be contacted via phone, text, or email to schedule their appointment.
