Lutheran Churches in Effingham Co. to Host COVID-19 Vaccination Events

Two churches in Effingham County will hold the following COVID-19 vaccination events next month in Rincon:

  • 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
    Wednesday September 8th and Wednesday, September 29th
    St. John’s Lutheran Church located at 301 N. Columbia Avenue in Rincon
  • 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
    Wednesday, September 22nd, and Wednesday, October 13th
    Jerusalem Lutheran Church located at 2966 Ebenezer Road in Rincon

The Pfizer and Janssen vaccines will be available at the events. The Pfizer vaccine is approved for those 12 years and older and requires two doses a few weeks apart, and the Janssen vaccine by Johnson and Johnson is approved for those 18 years and older and only requires one dose.

Only 32 percent of residents in Effingham County are fully vaccinated and the community transmission rate in the County is at an all-time high. Anyone who has not yet been vaccinated is urged to do so as soon as possible. The vaccine is free, regardless of insurance, and no appointment is necessary.

“From the Bible we read in the book of 3rd John verse 2 a prayer that the reader of the letter be as healthy in body as they are strong in spirit,” said Reverend Rick Johnson, pastor at St. John’s Lutheran. “The spirit of our community has always been strong and our prayer in the here and now is that our Lord give us the strength and guidance to be present and help everyone in our community to do what it takes to remain healthy in body as well as mind and spirit in the teeth of this pandemic and be vaccinated.”
