Free COVID-19 vaccines at La Festa Italiana

After a year off due to the pandemic, one health network offered something to battle the virus off - the COVID-19 vaccine.

SCRANTON, Pa. — Scranton's annual La Festa Italiana was canceled last year due to the pandemic, so this year, the festival offered something to battle the virus with.

Lehigh Valley Health Network had a table set up on Courthouse Square and offered free COVID-19 vaccines to anyone who wants one.

"We did have somebody here earlier who was able to walk here! It was a much more convenient spot for her, so we were very glad that we can help her get her vaccine," said Laura Williams, Outreach Specialist with LVHN.

The free COVID-19 vaccines wrap up at 8 p.m., La Festa Italiana continues on Monday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
