The new year is bringing some changes to the county’s COVID-19 vaccine clinics, including more convenient hours and the return of a previous location in Upper Bucks.
Beginning the second week of January, the county’s Jamison clinic at Warwick Square shopping center will move from the former Giant grocery store to the former Pet Valu store just a few doors away.
An Upper Bucks clinic will return one day a week to the Perkasie campus of Bucks County Community College. The Neshaminy Mall clinic’s location will remain unchanged.
To prepare for the transition, the county’s clinics will close at 2 p.m. Dec. 31, and will not reopen until Monday, Jan. 10.
When clinics reopen, they are set to operate on the following schedule:
Upper Bucks Campus (Perkasie) Bucks County Community CollegeTuesday: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Warwick Square (Jamison)Monday: 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.Wednesday: 12 p.m. – 7 p.m.Friday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Neshaminy Mall (Bensalem)Tuesday: 12 p.m. – 7 p.m.Thursday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Clinics will continue to administer vaccine at no cost to recipients. Primary and booster doses of Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines all will be available at each clinic.
The clinics will be open exclusively to walk-ins. Scheduling of appointments will not be available.
The new clinic schedule comes as the county’s contract with AMI Expeditionary Healthcare is set to expire at the end of the year. AMI was the primary operator of the county’s vaccine clinics for much of 2021.
Replacing AMI is Bucks County-based Little Big Health Solutions. The firm was founded and is run by local clinicians who, while working for AMI, helped run the county’s vaccine sites.
During its Dec. 15 meeting, the Board of Commissioners approved a nine-month, $3 million contract with the company. The cost of the contract is covered by federal dollars received through the American Rescue Plan Act.
The Bucks County Health Department and the county Emergency Management Agency will maintain oversight of the clinics under the new contract.
